It is crucial for young couples in love, as well as those who are not prepared for marriage or do not desire children, to adopt suitable contraceptive measures during sexual activity. Failing to do so may result in an unintended pregnancy, which can significantly impact the psychological well-being of both men and women.

Having an unplanned child can have detrimental effects on the child's well-being and create distress and emotional instability for both partners involved. Therefore, it is essential to employ effective contraceptive methods. One such method is coitus interruptus, which involves withdrawing before ejaculation as a form of contraception.

While some individuals may not be familiar with this approach, it is practiced by certain couples as a contraceptive method in real life. However, it is crucial for both men and women to understand the potential implications of consistently relying on this method.

What is coitus interruptus?

Many men dislike wearing condoms because they feel restrained and uncomfortable and cannot experience pleasure. Therefore, these men may use coitus interruptus for contraception, thinking that there is no problem as long as the sperm is not in the woman's body, there is no problem.
However, they do not realize this method is unreliable and has a higher failure rate. Coitus interruptus, as the name suggests, is when a man interrupts the ejaculation process artificially and releases semen outside the woman's body when he approaches orgasm or is about to ejaculate during sexual intercourse.

The process of sexual activity between married couples is controlled by the cerebral cortex and regulated by the neuroendocrine system. It is completed through the coordinated and orderly chain reaction of the reproductive system and multiple organ systems throughout the body.

Is frequent coitus interruptus harmful?

Frequent coitus interruptus may negatively affect the body, leading to neurofunctional disorders in controlling penile erection and ejaculation, resulting in sexual dysfunction such as impotence and premature ejaculation, and increasing the risk of not ejaculating.

Since the semen cannot be immediately discharged during ejaculation interruption, it increases the pressure in the reproductive system, which can easily cause damage to the prostate and seminal vesicles, leading to infectious diseases such as prostatitis and seminal vesiculitis.

The prostate gland is a vital reproductive organ in males, playing a critical role in ejaculation. Prolonged use of coitus interruptus with incomplete ejaculation can result in prostate damage, trigger prostatitis, and cause urinary irritation symptoms such as frequent urination, urgency, and incontinence. Additionally, it may lead to discomfort in the perineum, scrotum, and penis. In such cases, patients can actively consider traditional Chinese medicine treatments like Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill.

Furthermore, this practice can easily lead to male neurofunctional disorders and negatively impact the quality of sexual life, leading to dissatisfaction for both partners. It's important to note that coitus interruptus is not a highly effective form of contraception. If contraception is desired, it is recommended to use condoms.

Maintaining personal hygiene and cleanliness during sexual activity is crucial. Proper washing of the genital area before and after intercourse is essential. Moreover, coitus interruptus can contribute to female sexual frigidity, as women may not achieve sexual satisfaction if the male partner interrupts the intercourse and ejaculates outside the body before reaching orgasm.

Another consequence is the potential disharmony between couples. While coitus interruptus may appear to be a contraceptive method, it is prone to contraceptive failure and can lead to mutual suspicion, distrust, and emotional distance between partners.

In summary, we can understand that withdrawal is not a recommended contraceptive method.
