Withdrawal: Side Effects, Benefits and FAQs

Side Effects

The Positive

  • As inexpensive as it gets
  • No prescription necessary

The Negative

  • The only side effect of withdrawal is a very real possibility of having a baby before you’re ready
  • Difficult to perform perfectly every single time
  • Hard to remember to do if you’re drunk

You might want to use a spermicide along with pulling out to make withdrawal more effective.
