The chances of getting

The chances of getting pregnant from your husband inserting his penis once and then withdrawing before ejaculating is actually fairly small. You are using a form of birth control called Withdrawal which has a failure rate comparable to other methods, like the diaphragm and female condom, when used by married couples.

Generally, the pre-ejaculate fluid contains no sperm, unless your partner had a recent ejaculation. However, if you keep using this form of birth control it is possible that eventually a pregnancy could result.

It sounds like you have questions about when you are most fertile. To learn about your fertile and infertile times, read about Natural Family Planning on this site. You might try the Standard Days Method, which is the next generation of the Calendar/Rhythm Method.
