Without the guy knowing, some sperm leak out of the penis even before ejaculation. This means that even if the guy pulls out before he ejaculates, a girl can still become pregnant. Also, if the guy ejaculates close to the outside of the vagina, the sperm can swim up into the vagina. However, withdrawal is considered a better method of contraception than none at all.</p> <h3>Does Withdrawal Help Prevent STDs?</h3> <p>No. Withdrawal does not protect against <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/talk-child-stds.html/">STDs</a>. Couples having sex must always use <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/condoms.html/">condoms</a> to protect against STDs even when using another method of <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/about-bc.html/">birth control</a>.</p> <h3>When Should I Call the Doctor?</h3> <p>A girl who uses withdrawal should call the doctor if she:</p> <ul> <li>might be pregnant</li> <li>has a change in the smell or color of vaginal discharge</li> <li>has unexplained fever or chills</li> <li>has belly or pelvic pain</li> <li>has pain during sex</li> </ul>Sobre la marcha atrásIncluso en aquellas personas que creen que están haciendo la marcha atrás correctamente, no se trata de un método anticonceptivo eficaz. https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/parents/withdrawal-esp.html/c2336ab8-5b0c-478c-a3ae-ba8eb55ceb75
