Pulling out just before ejaculation. Withdrawal is not an effective method, because some sperm is released before ejaculation. In addition, it is very difficult to time because the man must pull out at the most exciting moment. This method is popular among teenagers who have sex before they realize the consequences.

About as effective as the Fertility Awareness method, but a lot more nerve racking and messy.

Douching (flushing the vagina with a liquid) after sexual intercourse is not an effective birth control method because sperm start swimming towards the egg seconds after ejaculation. Douching with carbonated beverages can be very dangerous.

Jumping/Standing

 

Jumping up and down after sex or having sex standing up is not an effective birth control method.

Masturbation

 

Masturbation before sexual intercourse will not reduce sperm count enough to prevent conception.

Breast Feeding

 

Some people state that breast feeding naturally suppress ovulation, but 80% of nursing mothers don't experience this delay.
