To begin, I’d like to discuss the use of birth control as a means of achieving a natural healthy delivery experience. Because babies are known to defy scientific explanations, no one who is sexually active can fully exert control. Despite the fact that women may and do have numerous children in a healthy way, it takes around three years for a woman’s body to fully recover from pregnancy and birth, for the uterus to repair, and for the body to reabsorb vitamins and minerals in order to sustain another child.
There are times, however, when a woman and her family feel the need to take a break from the responsibilities of parenting. The mother’s stress levels, mental and psychological well-being, and any indicators of adrenal exhaustion, among other things, must all be taken into account for healthy delivery. If you find yourself in need of a healthy delivery rest but don’t want to put your body at risk, I’d like to recommend some hormone-free options that might help you out.
The average female menstrual cycle is 28-31 days long, starting on the first day of her period and ending on the first day of the following month. Before I continue, it’s important to understand the female menstrual cycle, which is especially important if you plan to utilize hormone-free contraception. Approximately 14 days after the start of her menstruation, the average female ovulates. For a woman, the days leading up to and following ovulation are the most fertile.
Where Are Some Hormone-Free Birth Control Options?
Diaphragm/cervical cap A cervical cap is a cup that is put into the vaginal canal and covers the cervix’s opening to keep sperm out. While the modern, streamlined diaphragm (Caya) used to have to be fitted by a doctor, it can now be obtained online. It is inserted before and removed after intercourse. The Pearl index for a cervical cap is 4-20, and it works best when combined with spermicide, but it can also be used alone.
It have no physical adverse effects, but they might inhibit spontaneity during sexual encounters, and the male partner may refuse or forget to use them. Condoms have a Pearl index of 3-12 when used appropriately, and are 82 percent effective with usual use (sometimes they are used incorrectly, or they break).
Changes in the cervical region. It’s also a good idea to pay attention to indicators that your body is ovulating. This procedure necessitates a level of comfort and familiarity with your vaginal area. These include paying attention to the nature of your cervical mucus and the length of your cervix, as both can indicate whether you’re going to ovulate or have already done so.
The Lady-Comp Fertility Monitor is a natural form of birth control that has been making its way into integrative circles. A woman is taking her body’s temperature with the thermometers attached to the monitor after at least 3 hours of sleep. Lady-Comp is non-invasive, hormone-free, and has no negative side effects. The Pearl index is 0.7. (99.3 percent effective).
To account for sickness and anomalies in the cycle. The monitor takes your temp and compares it to 40,000 other women’s cycles. Green indicates that you may engage in unsafe intercourse. Yellow indicates that you should exercise caution, and red indicates that you should use backup protection or abstain. A green, yellow, or red light will appear on the monitor. The more you use the device, the more it learns about your cycle and gives you fewer yellow lights and more red and green ones.
You can alternatively use a basal body thermometer, which is significantly less expensive. But lacks the interpretive element and the ability to compare to past cycles. The Lady-Comp thermometer can also be used as a fertility guide. Albeit there is supplementary software to help supplement the device for that purpose.
What Are Some Hormonal Birth Control Options?
It’s the pill. Since the 1960s, birth control tablets have been in use. They are used on a daily basis to avoid pregnancy. To fool a woman’s body into believing she’s pregnant, they utilize progesterone and oestrogen (female reproductive hormones). The lower the Pearl index, the less likely you are to become pregnant accidently when using contraception, and vice versa.) They have a Pearl index of 0.1-1, indicating that they are extremely efficient. (A Pearl index is a measure of a birth control method’s effectiveness.) Excess weight, blood clots, digestive troubles, hormone imbalances, malignancies, and infertility are all possible side effects of birth control tablets.
Intrauterine Gadget (Iud):
A physician inserts the device, and it can be removed by the same physician at any moment. IUDs with and without hormones are available. They can last up to ten years (shorter for hormonal IUDs, longer for non-hormonal IUDs). The primary function of an IUD is to cause inflammation in the uterine wall lining. Causing white blood cells to continually rise to the surface and devour any sperm that may be there. High blood pressure, autoimmune problems, cervical dysplasia (the formation of precancerous cells in the cervix), dysmenorrhea (pain throughout menstruation), and irregular cycles and/or periods are all possible side effects. An IUD’s Pearl index ranges from 0.1 to 1.5.
Shot of Depo-Provera A Depo shot is a large dose of hormones given to a woman every three months. Which has the same adverse effects as the contraceptive pill and has a Pearl index of 0.3. It stops the ovaries from producing eggs and thickens cervical mucus. Preventing sperm from reaching the egg if one is released.
Examine your options and decide which is the greatest option for you. Any of these tactics can be employed alone or in conjunction with others. I also recommend that you and your partner decide together. Whether or not to use birth control and the method to utilize it. I propose Lady-Comp, tracking cervical mucus and lengthening. Using condoms as a backup if you want to maintain a good sexual balance. While helping your body and family to recover before (another) birth and baby and healthy delivery. A woman should not be pressured to use birth control or have children because neither contributes to a healthy environment.
