Avoiding unwanted and unforeseen pregnancies is possible via birth control methods. While there are several types of birth control procedures, there are some more natural and general ways that are used by a large percentage of women.
The most common of these is the fertility awareness method in which practicing sex when a woman is close to ovulation is not recommended. Even though this method is not a reliable one, but the chances of conceiving are highly reduced. One can easily check for her ovulation time considering her menstruation cycles and patterns. However, for women who suffer from irregular patterns seeking professional advice is recommended.
If you are traveling then make sure you are prepared for an irregular menstrual cycle. Most women experience a highly disordered and abrupt change in their cycles when they travel. This usually triggers irregular bleeding. On the other hand, factors such as stress and extensive workout patterns may also cause irregularities in your bleeding cycle-usually missing out on expected dates. These irregularities, in turn, are directly linked to your fertility cycles, and thus for those women who rely on fertility awareness methods– a recheck and a more reliable method of birth control are highly recommended.
Contraceptive agents and devices are among the primary birth control methods used nowadays. However, to ensure that these agents work best by highly minimizing the chances of conception, their storage procedures need to be paid due attention to. Avoid condoms from vending machines which stand directly in the sunlight for long hours. Direct light tends to damage the latex.
Before taking any pills or using contraceptives make sure you check the expiry dates to prevent further complications.
One of the best tips to achieve successful birth control is to make use of condoms. Not only will this protect you from unwanted pregnancy and other complications but it also tends to protect both the partners from urinary and vaginal infections, which are rapidly spread via practicing unprotected sex.
Also, as the availability of condoms is not limited by any factors, one can easily locate them almost anywhere he/she goes. The quality however is a matter of personal choice and we suggest you opt for nothing but the best to assure maximum control.
If you are with a partner then we suggest you do not forget to take your birth control pill. A birth control pill is in actual a contraceptive agent which contains estrogen and progestin. These chemicals in turn prevent the ovulation process and thus provide successful birth control.
While taking birth control pills, make sure you opt for the ones which contain low doses of hormones and thus provide minimum side effects and health risks. Pills containing an abundant dosage of chemicals and hormones are not recommended for frequent usage.
One of the best ways to select an effective birth control method is to discuss it with your partner and consult a health care clinic for advice. A health professional will be able to better guide you on what method and option to choose and its safe usage.
