Absolutely! Sperm exists in pre-*** and the withdrawal method is by no means a safe and full proof birth control method.. not to mention that it does not prevent STDs. You should always use a condom and if you are going to be having sex, then you should probably go on the birth control pill.
It is not 100% safe, but when you think of the millions of sperm that are sent swimming in the woman during ejaculation, and they say only a couple hundred even make it close to the egg, (and that's if conditions are good, like alkaline cervical mucous, etc.), it seems that it would be very rare for someone to get pregnant this way. I know you can, though, as I have read on these posts.
My husband says precum is something that men can feel, and it comes out just before they ejaculate, not the whole time during intercourse. Is that true? I was just wondering if he knows what he's talking about.
No men cant feel precum and it leaks from the time of erection to the time of ejaculation. Now it varies from man to man on amount and such but most leak it. My hubby didnt even know about it until he hooked up with me. And at first didnt believe me until I showed him..I am sure you can figure out how I showed him. You can give him a hand job and show him,it isnt easy to see because in most cases it is clear. But if you rub your finger over the head you will feel it get wet. The more aroused he gets the more he will leak.
This is why the withdrawal method doesnt work as most people think it does. Guys CAN NOT tell when they are leaking precum. Unless they have their hand on the head of penis the entire time they are aroused.
Here are some sites that will give you the facts to hand over to hubby... <A HREF="http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/0601.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/0601.html</A> <A HREF="http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/1186.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/1186.html</A>
The secondoneis a bit long but in the fifth paragraph you will find some info about precum that your hubby needs to read. <A HREF="http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/0496.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/0496.html</A>
I know the withdrawl method doesn't work as a full proof way of birth control, but to be honest, my husband and I have used it for about 14 years and the only times I've gotten pregnant is when we've been trying. I'm sure it has a lot to do with my irregular cycles, but for us it has worked. After this baby, though, I am definately going to get on some form of birth control because I don't want any more children. At least right now I don't! Thanks for clearing that up about pre-***, Whitewolf. I guess my husband doesn't really understand, so I'll fill him in.
