Yes you can.: Withdrawal is not a good form of birth control. It has been said that the lubricant (so called precum) has enough sperm in it to get you pregnant. Don't know if that is totally accurate but why take the chance. See your doctor and discuss a more reliable form of birth control.

Pull out Method: Thirty percent of couples who use the pull out method get pregnant. Semen leaks out of an erect penis whether one has 'self control' or not. Semen has fresh, living sperm in it. It only takes one sperm to cause pregnancy.
