Unprotected sexual intercourse can lead to pregnancy. Then she has to make difficult choices between birth unwanted child and abortion. Abortion can have some serious consequences for women's health: inflammatory gynecological diseases, bleeding, infertility, menstrual disorders. A history of abortion increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage and intrauterine fetal abnormalities.
Rational use of contraceptive methods allows the couple to carefully prepare for a woman's pregnancy and the birth of the child. Thus, the interval between births should be at least two years. Some contraceptives have a therapeutic effect on the reproductive system.
For birth control must be protected from possible accidental pregnancy. The most reliable is a mechanical barrier method. Meeting of the sperm with the egg prevents condom. Can be used both male and female condoms.
There are natural methods of contraception. They are based on the calculation of safe days in the menstrual cycle of women. Also natural methods include coitus interruptus, when the penis is removed from the vagina before ejaculation occurs.
One of the natural methods, the way nature intended, is known as the lactational amenorrhea method. During breastfeeding a woman for some time absent menstruation (about six months). This means that a woman is not able to conceive during this period.
