Am I NTNP?


We just had our DD back in March of this year. I'm still breastfeeding but I got my first postpartum period on November 17th. My DH won't wear a condom and I refuse to take hormonal birth control but my DH pulls out every time. Would we be classified as NTNP instead of NFP if we use the pull-out method as our sole form of contraception?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think NTNP refers to those who just have unprotected sex (as in with unprotected ejaculation) without worrying about the consequences of getting pregnant. If you guys are using the pull out method, that is technically your BC choice. It may not be as reliable as say hormonal BC or barrier methods since there is a high chance of having an accident but you're doing it to try to prevent a pregnancy.

Pulling out is a form of preventing pregnancy. So imho, I would say no. NTNP means your having unprotected sex, not preventing pregnancy, and not actively trying to have a baby (OPKs, charting, etc).

Thanks ladies, that's what I thought too but I've met people that classified the pull-out as NTNP so I wasn't sure.

My DH and I use pull-out as our prevention (very successfully too), so idk how anyone would say that's ntnp. DH doesn't like to "try" so he currently isn't pull-on out and we just dtd when we feel like it which is ntnp

It's because some people might only consider prevention in the forms of birth control (unnatural). Especially if it's someone's first time trying for a baby it might confuse them at first.

...but why would you pull out if you wanted a baby or didn't care if you got pregnant? Lol that just doesn't make sense to me

I don't think she was asking because she wanted a baby. She was just asking what the pull out method was qualified as.
