In brief: Not effective

The man secrets seminal fluid during intercourse that will have some sperms which will render you at risk of pregnancy, this is even before ejaculation.
So withdrawal may have been a little bit to late.

In brief: Not very

Withdrawal is not very effective for birth control pill.
It is essential to use a barrier method if true birth control is required.
