CONTRACEPTION

CONTRACEPTION

CONTRACEPTION

Different contraception methods give individuals greater control over their sexual health and reproductive capabilities, enabling them to take greater ownership of their fertility. Contraception is used for various purposes, the most obvious being reducing the chance of pregnancy. However, it can also reduce the risk of certain medical conditions like endometriosis. There are three main types of birth control options available:

Surgical Contraception:

Surgical contraception is a safe and long-term option, giving greater freedom to women and couples who have chosen not to have children or are happy with the size of their household. Surgical contraception can also provide relief for those dealing with health conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and pelvic inflammatory disease.

The procedure permanently prevents pregnancy by blocking the fallopian tubes so they cannot deliver an egg to the uterus. It typically takes only minutes to perform and, in most cases, requires no hospital stay.

Another surgical contraception option is Essure. This method involves the placement of a comfortable, malleable insert into each of the patient’s fallopian tubes, which gradually develops an impenetrable barrier that effectively prevents pregnancy over time.

The procedure involves fewer risks than more invasive surgical procedures and has been proven a successful form of contraception. However, this procedure is generally irreversible and should be a final option to prevent unintended pregnancies.

Non-Surgical Contraception:

Non-surgical contraception is becoming a popular choice for women and couples who want to avoid pregnancy in a non-invasive, hormone-free way. This type of contraception relies on physical barriers similar to condoms, including birth control implant options such as copper IUDs (intrauterine devices), diaphragm contraceptive devices, cervical caps, birth control sponges, contraceptive gels such as depo provera and spermicide. These solutions act as blockages that prevent sperm from entering the uterus and fertilising the egg.

It is essential to understand that these methods (except for condoms), do not protect against STDs or HIV, so it is necessary to use protective methods and non-surgical contraceptives while engaging in sexual intercourse.

Hormonal Contraception:

Hormonal contraception is clinically proven to be a safe and effective form of birth control. It consists of hormonal medications designed to prevent pregnancies by disrupting regular ovulation cycles and preventing sperm from fertilising an egg. The hormonal contraception comes in various forms, including contraceptive pills, shots, implants, and patches.

In addition to preventing pregnancies, hormonal contraception is also proven to reduce the intensity and duration of menstrual cramps, clear acne issues, and provide relief from heavy periods. As such, hormonal contraception is not just an excellent method for family planning but may also serve as a solution for medical complications linked to hormonal imbalances.
