Doctor :  
if practiced properly the withdrawal method is nearly 80% effective
User :   what exactly is proper practice?
Doctor :  
it is to pull out the penis before the ejaculation occurs
User :   Ok. I have heard that precum can have sperm in it. Would the amount be enough to cause a pregancy?
Doctor :   though there is much talk about pre come and the presence of sperm in precome
Doctor :   it has failed to produce pregnancy in many studies
Doctor :   so the conclusion is precome is not enough to cause pregnancy
User :   ok As far as natural family planing and the rythm method go, how can I calculate when I began to ovulate?
Doctor :  
if your mensus cycle regular it is usually the 14th day ovulation occurs
User :   and how long does the average woman ovulate?
Doctor :  
so the 14th day of the cycle is the ovulation day
User :   ok thank you very much for help
