Hi Erica

Thanks for your question!

The pull out method works for some and not for others. Generally it's considered to be about 70%-95% effective depending on how adept people are about using it.

If your husband is pulling out and you want to be pregnant, are you disagreeing on having a baby? Why are you using the pull out method? Make sure you are on the same page. If you both want a baby, then stop the withdrawal method and have regular unprotected sex. Here is an article on how to increase your chances at pregnancy: http://www.empowher.com/infertility-fertility/content/fertility-and-conception-how-it-works

I hope this helps and good luck to you!
