Should I buy a morning after pill if the withdrawal method was used correctly?

We made a mistake and did not use a condom but we pulled out perfectly. Should I still go buy the morning after pill?

    There is no such thing as pulling out perfectly.

    You had sex without birth control. Sex without birth control is the single most popular way to become parents.

    Yes - you had better go buy the morning-after pill. But, you had better hurry. You have to take it within 72 hours of having sex; and even then it's not guaranteed to prevent pregnancy - not if you were ovulating at the time you had unprotected sex.

    It's almost impossible for a young, inexperienced male to use the pull-out method "perfectly". He simply doesn't have the physical control that's necessary to pull completely out before he begins ejaculating - even if it's only a couple of drops. It's going to take only ONE drop of semen to cause pregnancy.

    If you're going to rely on the pull-out method, then you need to be aware that most young couples who rely on it end up being called 'mommy' and 'daddy' within a year's time.

      alan P Each drop of semen contains 1000's of sperm cells & every one of those 1000's of cells is viable. It takes only ONE viable sperm cell to cause pregnancy. For a male contraceptive to be truly effective, it would have cease the production of ALL sperm cells - not just reduce the number.

    pulling out is only done correctly if you dont become pregnant

    Here is a news flash~~ there is no such thing as 'correctly using the withdrawal method'. There is sperm in pre-c*m, and sperm can be introduced into you way before he feels like he is going to c*m. Don't be so stupid as to think that you are safe using that method, or any method of birth control for that matter. No birth control is 100% safe with the exception of not having sex at all.

      There is no "correctly" about the withdrawal method - yes, it offers "some" protection, but no, it does not offer total protection. Definitely time for Plan B - so much cheaper than even a slight chance of paying for childcare for 16 years. Do not have sex again until you know the facts, not myths!

    Yes. And then next time you should use a condom.

    You made a mistake? So you ... tripped and fell on his penis?

    Of course, yes.

    A) That's not a mistake, that's a conscious decision. B) How did "we" pull out perfectly? It's a one-person job. C) Pulling out is not birth control, so even done "perfectly" it can still cause pregnancy.

    You can certainly try the MAP. If you'd already ovulated it won't do anything though.
