Sexual activity is very important for the emotional crisis between men and women, but it is important to pay attention to safety and avoid unexpected events such as pregnancy. If you are not ready yet, you must take contraceptive measures, which is also the responsibility of women. How many contraceptive methods are there? Let's investigate together next.
How many contraceptive methods are there?
1. Condom contraception
Condom contraception is also a very common contraceptive method, with a male condom efficiency of up to 98% and a female condom efficiency of up to 95%. In addition to being efficient, condoms can also reduce the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. It should be noted that when purchasing condoms, attention must be paid to the quality and shelf life, and expired products should not be used. During use, it is also important to be careful not to fall off or break to prevent contraceptive failure. It is important to know how to use it correctly.
2. Intrauterine device
The intrauterine device (IUD), also known as intrauterine device (IUD), is placed in the uterus to slowly release progesterone, which can achieve the goal of contraception. The advantage of an intrauterine device (IUD) is that it is relatively safe and reliable, and there is no need to wait after removal. It can immediately prepare for pregnancy. However, there are also women who are not suitable for this contraceptive method and may experience a series of discomfort, which can also affect menstruation and cause menstrual irregularities.
3. Subcutaneous buried contraception
Subcutaneous contraception is also a very effective contraceptive method with high efficiency, but many people are not familiar with this contraceptive method. Subcutaneous implantation of contraception is a contraceptive method that achieves contraceptive effects by embedding a hose that can release pregnancy hormones. The implantation site is generally under the skin of the upper arm, suitable for women who need contraception for a long time, and can also be used during lactation.
4. Short acting oral contraceptive pills
When it comes to birth control pills, many people are very resistant, believing that all birth control pills will affect women's health. Actually, this is not the case. Contraceptives are divided into long-term contraceptives, short-term contraceptives, and emergency contraceptives. Emergency contraceptives can have an impact on women's health, and should not be used more than twice a year. The short-acting oral contraceptive pills mentioned here require taking one pill every day. Its advantages are that it is more convenient and efficient, and pregnancy can be prepared immediately after stopping taking the pills, without the need to wait for a period of time. Moreover, taking short-term oral contraceptives can also reduce the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer in women. It should be noted that if using this method of contraception, it is best to take it on time every day and not miss out on taking it. Otherwise, the success rate will be significantly reduced, and even unexpected pregnancies may occur.
Different types of contraceptive methods have different efficiency and advantages and disadvantages. We hope to have a deep understanding before choosing contraceptive methods. If you don't plan to have children, you must take safety measures every time you have sex to avoid accidents.
