My boyfriend of 9months and I want to try to have sex, but i dont want to talk to my aunt& uncle about the pill because they will freak out on me, and probably kill me because i asked. We want to have sex but don't want to become pregnant.

If we were to use a condom and he "pulls out" before cumming, would I become pregnant?

We really want to try but we dont know any other way besides actually having sex.

Pulling out right before orgasm would not be advised when using condoms. This is because, in the heat of the moment, it can be really difficult to remember to hold the base of the condom, and you might end up with a bigger risk from the condom slipping off than you would from him orgasming inside of the condom inside of you. It would probably be better if you two just got really comfortable using condoms correctly (putting them on the right way, using lots of lube, etc) A really good source of information for all about how to use condoms is found here: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/boyfriend/condom_basics_a_users_manual

If you're not comfortable with just condoms, you could try another form of birth control. You might want to start your search for a second method here: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/sexuality/birth_control_bingo

Hope some of this helps!

Just to be clear: condoms alone are a VERY efficient form of birth control.

To add to psykins post, here's an article on withdrawal as a birth control: http://www.scarleteen.com/birth_control_bingo_withdrawal

it includes a list of other methods where it may be combined, including condoms.
