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.

Couples having sex must always use <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/contraception-condom.html/">condoms</a> to protect against STDs even when using another method of <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/bc-chart.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 <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/vdischarge2.html/">vaginal discharge</a></li> <li>has unexplained fever or chills</li> <li>has belly or pelvic pain</li> <li>has pain during sex</li> </ul>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/teens/contraception-withdrawal-esp.html/3a983c92-7792-477c-950d-75aab831c881
