What are the origins of a woman? What is the essence and nature? To protect, to love, to be a mother, the keeper of the hearth ... The female body by nature is designed to perform all these functions without harming itself. Take a look back at how we lived women in the old days? They grew, became girls, went outmarried, pregnant, fed ... then pregnant again and fed ... And so it happened not two or three times. Their body worked in a natural cycle: pregnancy-childbirth-feeding — several menstruation — pregnancy again, and so on. With such a “tight schedule”, not so much time fell on the share of critical days in a lifetime. Yes, women are tired of pregnancy, feeding. But they did not lose every month 80, or even 100 ml of blood. Moreover, for the lack of effective contraception, they especially had no choice.
And we? For 30-40 years of fertile age, taking into account one or two pregnancies and feeding, menstruation occurs 350-400 times. Multiply by 100ml of blood ... Of course, the body modern woman, at such a high pace of life needsspecial respect. And monthly blood loss creates an additional load. But how to minimize all these inconveniences that we get with menstruation? Constantly get pregnant and breastfeeding circumstances and life plans do not allow. A woman, on the contrary, wants stable and effective contraception. And in dreams - so that there are also fewer critical days. After all, in addition to blood loss, there is also usual discomfort: with heavy and painful periods, you need to drink painkillers every month and take care of hygiene literally every couple of hours.
Modern methods of contraception
But the situation is not hopeless. Hormonal contraception It allows you to shift, if necessary, cycle skipping several consecutive cycles or in some cases for years to forget about monthly. Several options:
- conventional combined oral contraceptives. A woman only changes the reception regimen without taking breaks between packs in order to shift or skip several cycles in a row. In general, it is not difficult, but it requires organization and self-discipline. And at the current pace, it is not always possible to always remember about tablets.
- intrauterine hormonal system. Suitable for women who do not want to take pills every day. It is set in the uterus and provides effective protection against pregnancy for up to five years. Installation usually goes well, but a few days are possible discomfort. Many women use it when periods become shorter and less abundant, less painful. For most women, menstruation when using it last 1-3 days and require only pads for everyday use. This type of contraception is completely reversible and, if you want again become a mother, the system can be deleted at any time andget pregnant. By the way, it is recommended as a drug of choice for nursing mothers, for whom protection is very important. All myths have been debunked about the method of lactational amenorrhea for a long time - conception during breastfeeding is possible, even in the first months, even with small intervals between applying the baby to the chest. So young mothers need to choose a particularly reliable method of contraception, because repeated pregnancy almost immediately after childbirth is a heavy load.
In addition, it is the local effect of the hormonemakes the intrauterine system accessible to some patients for whom oral contraceptives are contraindicated due to concomitant diseases or side effects.
So, hormonal contraception gives women thestability and confidence that it is so necessary in the conditions of intense rhythm of life. Modern drugs allow yourself to shift cycle, do menstruation leaner, less painful, to significantly reduce blood loss.
And the female body receives the necessary rest -without strong blood loss, with normal hemoglobin. This condition is close to what is inherent in nature. The difference is that the type and duration of contraceptive use is chosen by the woman herself. And the doctor will help her with this.
