But new study confirms that it's not good for preventing pregnancy

TUESDAY, Aug. 6 (HealthDay News) -- Withdrawal is an old-fashioned, unreliable form of birth control, but one-third of young women still use it anyway, new research indicates.

"Our study showed that use of withdrawal for contraception is very common, but it doesn't work as well as other methods," said study author Dr. Annie Dude, a resident in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Duke University Medical Center, in Durham, N.C.

Dude and her colleagues analyzed 2006-2008 data from a national survey of U.S. women, focusing on 2,220 participants between the ages of 15 and 24. Their aim was to see how commonplace it was for young, sexually active women to use withdrawal as a way to avoid pregnancy.

It's "Tourette's," short for "Tourette's Syndrome."

from the article:
Quote:

She said the research shows that health care providers who care for sexually active young women need to recognize that one reason couples may use withdrawal as a method of birth control is that they haven't planned ahead, and that providers need to take the time to discuss more effective birth control methods with their patients.

or parents need to get out of their state of denial that their kids are likely to have sex and speak to their kids about birth control methods, planning ahead and making intelligent choices

lol That "new" research is just backing up other research on the same topic except for the statistics part. Previous research shows that withdrawal is unreliable and has shown that for decades. On the "new" part, statistics, damn that's high. And excuse me, but women don't withdraw, men withdraw. It's a physiological phenomenon, ya know. Fortunately, wifey's never told me to get the f out. (We use a different couple of methods).

I know I thought that as well, once again the onus is upon the woman..."the woman uses withdrawl" who knows what the guy uses apparently they don't study them

I genuinely respect you for the work you did as an EMT. Seriously.

I thought it was worth telling you that.

Maybe it's because the percentage of Americans who are Latino has increased, and how most Latinos are Catholic.

In any case, women don't "use" withdrawl. Guys "use" withdrawl.

When a woman does it, it's called "pushing off".

My uncle talked withdrawl. Lack of schooling in enunciation, I suspect.

Or sometimes "sticking the dismount."

He certainly would. Considering he didn't have the internet, the Duke met an awful lot of stupid folk in his life.

But but but... How come when I was young I had a clear picture on what was good and bad and right and wrong, and it keeps getting fuzzier the older I get?
