Depo shot and pull out method?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Chances of getting pregnant with depo and pull out? I know these aren't 100% but condoms are boring. We don't have any stds and can handle a baby if it happens. I'm just interested in how effective these two are?

    Hi Ninjakitty, might be worth talking to whoever administers your depo injection about how long it will take to work, and risks of pregancy.

    Like you say, no contraception is 100% - and I've heard the pulling out method can be a bit risky due to sperm in pre-cum getting into the vagina etc. It may be a good idea to explore different types of condoms, or once you've spoken to your healthcare professional evaluate the risks and benefits of your depo injection.
