A woman’s life is not easy, there are so many things to worry about and so much care needed. Within the extensive list of concerns, there are contraceptive methods, since not all of them are adapted with the use of contraceptives and how to prevent pregnancy without contraceptives? The use of hormonal contraceptives is not only uncomfortable due to the way of daily and regulated use, but it can cause several female discomforts including health problems.
The hormonal loads contained in contraceptives, in addition to generating various discomforts, also pose a great risk of cardiovascular problems, in addition to completely affecting libido. It is also proven that after abandoning the use of contraceptives , women feel an improvement in cellulite and fluid retention. Other beneficial factors in the contraceptive suspension are the reduced risk of varicose veins and thrombosis, which is a problem that has grown in a frightening way in Brazil.
But obviously it is not just bad actions that the contraceptive provides, as it is a great way to control the menstrual cycle, decrease PMS symptoms and reduce the intensity of menstrual flow , in addition to keeping acne and pimples under control. As a way of preventing pregnancy, of course, no method is 100% reliable, but if used correctly they are almost minimal to get pregnant. It is worth remembering that the use of birth control pills are methods for not getting pregnant and do not protect against sexually transmitted diseases, so the use of condoms is essential.
If you are willing to abandon the pill method, but do not want to get pregnant at all, it is good for you to talk to your gynecologist and see the options indicated for you. After carrying out some tests he can point out the best alternatives, remembering that what is good for one may not be adapted for another so never use drugs and methods without medical advice and monitoring.
Pregnancy Prevention Options
There is a large list of options for contraceptive methods, some that still fit with hormonal contraceptives even though they are not pills and others that evade hormonal actions. One of the most recommended methods for not offering contraindications and side effects in women, is the condom . In addition to being practical, they are affordable or can even be picked up free of charge at health centers. In addition to preventing pregnancy, they protect against the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, syphilis and HPV, but they can cause allergies.
For those who do not rely only on condoms, they can opt for the IUD, which is the intrauterine system. However it is not as simple and practical as the pills since it is necessary to be placed in a doctor’s office, by the gynecologist. But on the other hand, its action is prolonged and can guarantee tranquility for an average of 5 to 10 years. Obviously regular monitoring is necessary to ensure that you have not moved.
Another very practical option that has been gaining the confidence of women is the adhesive or patch as it is called. The patch should remain on the skin for 7 days and be replaced by the next one and after completing 3 weeks of use, a week of menstrual pause should be given. The patch can be used on various parts of the body, making it possible to hide easily and still has the help of having few side effects.
There is another extensive list of methods considered natural to prevent pregnancy, but it is worth noting that they are not 100% safe if the woman does not know her menstrual cycle well and knows her fertile days. The fertile days tablets are widely used by women who decided to abandon pharmaceutical contraceptive methods for good, but they must be attentive to every sign such as ovulation , body temperature and any change in mucus. If the risk of becoming pregnant is at risk of your life, we do not advise you to follow these natural methods as well as withdrawal, which is very risky.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
