The site of our site encourages its readers to figure out what to do when the moment has come when we have to use emergency measures to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
When is it necessary?
First of all I would like to note thatmethods that will be described below, can hardly be attributed to such a concept as "contraception". Because as soon as there was the very undesirable "hitch" strongly recommend to consult a specialist to recommend it to you the way of permanent contraception for the future, which it is right for you.
Emergency measures to prevent unwantedpregnancy may not be deleterious to the female body. However, not always be too discriminating against women who have resorted to the same emergency contraception. After all, the situation may be quite different:
- the condom broke;
- "Slipped" a condom;
- unprotected sexual intercourse;
- wrong coitus interruptus.
Of course, this is not the whole list of situations thatmay occur. And it is very important not to get lost. It is recommended to visit a gynecologist, who can reliably explain the positive and negative aspects of contraception and suggest the most suitable way for you. If measures are taken, the preparations are drunk, it is still best to visit a specialist. Sometimes there are such situations when the worst thing - this is not an unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections by.
The essence of the emergency contraception significantlydifferent from contraception in its classic sense. If the purpose of conventional contraceptives - the prevention of unwanted pregnancies, the emergency it is important to have a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterine wall. That is, since there is so-called micro-abortion.
If an emergency occurred yet, andvisit the gynecologist it is currently not possible, then the first thing to ... sit down and relax. And to begin to count the days of her cycle. And determine whether it is this day is favorable for conception. For example, if the cycle of the "classic" and is 28-30 days, and the sexual act occurred in the first and last 8 days of the cycle, the pregnancy is likely to be no.
Also, sometimes women are wondering if neededEmergency measures in addition to the routine contraception? For example, in the first 14 days of taking oral contraceptives when their action has not yet started. Or was the need for antibiotics that are able to reduce the impact of the planned contraception. A specialist on this issue is very clear: additional measures are necessary, but not a hormonal contraceptives.
Emergency contraception during breastfeeding
Today, there are a number of drugs that are able to urgently protect against unwanted pregnancy. Gynecologists have long offered some basic protection schemes.
Of course, the most well-known to all and every -drug called postinor. Choosing it as a means of extra protection, you must remember that it is a drug of last generation, has many side effects and are very contains large amounts of hormones.
Take postinor must be as follows: no later than 72 hours after unprotected intercourse, the first pill, and even after 12 hours the second.
It should be remembered that the high hormoneconcentration of this drug can bring significant harm to the female body, in particular - the ovaries. This drug should be used no more than twice a year, and preferably less. Contraindicated girls under the age of 18 years, as their hormones are not yet fully established.
The drug is a new generationEskapel. Though he has no fewer contraindications and side effects than postinor, but has a more gentle effect on the female body. Apply it as not later than 72 hours after unprotected intercourse, but there is only one tablet and contains just 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel. It is worth noting that the WHO recommends just at this dose and take the emergency contraception drugs.
There are also more recent drugs,the latest generation, which contain anti-progesterone and actually considered harmless for women. These drugs are called Zhenale or Ginepriston. At the moment this is the most gentle medication protects against unwanted pregnancy.
One of the methods resorted to by somespecialists - is to adopt immediately a large dose of oral contraceptives, but the special scheme. Depending on what tool you use oral contraception. It is necessary to drink at first just 3 or 4 pills, and 12 hours later to repeat the dose. But this is not the most convenient and secure way to emergency contraception.
You can also consider the IUD,as a means of emergency contraception. But it is suitable only for those women who are just planning to put it. The fact that the doctor may put a spiral only after the necessary tests and ultrasound of the body and that it protect from unwanted pregnancy, it is necessary to place not later than five days after unprotected intercourse. In the case of rape of a spiral it is better not to give up if suddenly been brought genital infection, the spiral only simplify her way into the upper genital organs.
Emergency contraception and pregnancy
What if after taking hormonalfunds still become pregnant? Typically, doctors do not see the need to have an abortion if emergency contraception is still failed. By the way, all the manufacturers give a guarantee of protection of 98%. And if your baby was in the 2% - maybe this kid just need to see the light?
Another question, if hormonal contraceptivesIt was taken during pregnancy. If a woman has no idea about what is the child and the time is very small, there is the very nature of work often with impeccable child: if the body after administration of drugs is not ottorgnul embryo never happened miscarriage, most likely, no harm to him is not applied.
But if drugs are taken at a later stage of pregnancy, there may already be a problem, both the mother and the child. So the risk is more than not justified.
I would also like to note that therea huge variety of different "national" means of getting rid of an unwanted pregnancy. This includes hot tubs, and parsley, and heavy lifting, and a variety of herbs and infusions ... No specialist does not recommend so to experiment on his body! You can forever deprive yourself of the health and the possibility to have a baby.
It is important to remember that it is absolutely safeEmergency contraception does not exist. But she is still somewhat safer than abortion. In order not to have to resort to either of these methods, it is best to visit a gynecologist and get a clear answer, which method of contraception the most classic safe.
