Withdrawal is not an effective contraceptive method. You will probably get pregnant if you rely on this method. You are also at risk for infections. Condoms protect you from pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. Remember HIV is alive and well and out there. You can't tell by looking at someone that they are infected. Be safe, get tested, protect yourself! You can do an oral HIV test and get the result in 20 minutes. Ask your partner to get tested also.
