Can withdrawal make you pregnant?

ANSWER

Can you get pregnant if he pulls out? The short answer is yes, you can. The pull-out method, also called the withdrawal method, is not a reliable way to prevent pregnancy. But it works better than doing nothing. And it can be an option for some couples who wouldn't mind getting pregnant.
