Pros and cons of interrupted sexual intercourse

Interrupted sexual intercourse is grandfather-tested and even great-grandfather-based method of contraception. But, surprisingly, today, despite truly huge selection of contraceptives, this method remains most popular among both active couples and young people. To begin, we define concepts.

From physiological point of view, interrupted sexual intercourse (ISI) suggests that man removes penis just before ejaculation, which occurs anywhere, but not in woman’s vagina. As far as it is justified and what it leads to, consider pros and cons.

First we will talk about advantages.

Availability

Method is really quite accessible, absolutely free and, as they say, always at hand. No need to calculate safe days, take pills on schedule. And, perhaps, each of us had such situations when desire is so strong that lack of contraceptives on hand isn`t argument for stopping at all. It`s here that those who aren`t yet ready to become parents, are supposedly supposed to help interrupted sexual intercourse.

Simplicity

Many of us are oral contraceptives, as well as spirals, very skeptical. Articles in women’s magazines and comments in Internet are full of stories about how women are recovering by breaking their natural hormones with birth control pills. In addition, oral contraceptives should be taken regularly, strictly following schedule. You will miss it once – blame yourself. Trying to avoid all these difficulties, many women choose or agree to “interrupted flight”.

Brightness of impressions

Very often, partners, both men and women, are fiercely unwilling to use condoms. Men complain that even when using ultra-thin specimens, sensitivity of penis is markedly reduced, and having sex in condom is compared with swimming in rubber boots.

And, fair sex admits that during sexual intercourse with condom many people don`t get lubrication and excitement quickly disappears. And in case of ISI, process is as close to natural as possible; no obstacles prevent partners from being able to survive entire firework of most pleasant emotions and sensations.

And now about disadvantages.

Risk of unwanted pregnancy

Despite the promise – in fact, PPA is primarily means of protection from unplanned pregnancy – this method is effective only in 70% of cases. In other words, this means that one in 4 women, who use interrupted sexual intercourse as only method of protection becomes pregnant.

Fact is that men contain from 10 to 20 million sperm cells in pre-seminal fluid, and during intercourse probability that one, but most agile of them will be able to get to your egg and fertilize it, is absolutely not excluded. Even if partner is experienced enough and superbly controls ejaculation, no man is able to keep pre-semen fluid, alas! That is, the reliability of this method of contraception is low.

Defenselessness against disease

There is nothing to comment on – when sexual intercourse is interrupted, any sexually transmitted infection isn`t easy to get, but very simple. Therefore, to practice this method of contraception can only couples who fully trust each other.

Frigidity and impotence

For many years, it was believed that interruption was harmful only to men, because need to control ejaculation exhausts male psyche so much that it can lead to most dire consequences.

When man is at height of passion, he needs to make effort to stop. It`s this condition, doctors believe, that causes not only malfunction of central nervous system, but also pathological changes in penis itself. Reason lies in fact that due to long-term use of this method, blood vessels of reproductive apparatus lose their tone, and this leads to disorders of circulatory system and causes premature ejaculation and male sexual impotence.

However, women aren`t in best position. According to ubiquitous statistics, half of men after 30 years who went to doctor with complaints of prostatitis, half regularly practiced interrupted sexual intercourse, and among women who never experienced an orgasm, about 50% regularly resort to this contraceptive method.
