How much extra pregnancy prevention does pulling out before ejaculation provide although I am on the pill and we also always use condoms?

You want to go to the main site, out "withdrawal" in the search box, and you will get right to a whole page on it that tells you how effective that method is.

Mind, we cannot really do the math on that with both the pill and condoms, since condoms already do, more effectively, what withdrawal does, so it basically doesn't offer you any additional protection there. Honestly, once a person is using Any two methods of contraception, and properly, protection just really cannot get any higher unless they swap one or both of those methods for a method with higher effectiveness, like switching to condoms instead of using withdrawal. Adding a third usually will not do jack, and no combined methods, no matter how many, gets anyone to 100%.
