Natural ways to prevent pregnancy
While pregnancy is something worth celeberating, some times are just not right for it.
Here are some methods of preventing pregnancy, which go hand-in-hand with the human body and medical science:
Have safe during safe period
This method provides an added layer of precaution if you already have some kind of protection in place.
You can avoid the ovulation days, which usually occur two weeks before the period. A good way to go about it is to consult a fertility expert to track your ovulation days and schedule your intercourse accordingly.
Practise the start-stop method
The male partner can take care not to ejaculate inside his partner. This method requires practice, and there’s a risk that the sperm might somehow enter the vagina.
Therefore, it’s better to do this along with other proven contraceptive methods.
Tract your basal body temperature
Once your period ends, you can start tracking your basal body temperature. When ovulation begins, the temperature starts rising and peaks on the day of ovulation.
You can avoid conception if you avoid sex during this period.
Look out for cervical discharge
A woman’s body produces a transparent, jelly-like discharge in the days leading up to ovulation. Abstaining from sex during this period can prevent ovulation.
Ginger is believed to induce a period and prevent pregnancy. Some grated ginger boiled in a cup of water for five minutes can be strained and consumed twice a day. However, this remedy also does not guarantee results.
Papaya, apricot, dried figs, cinnamon, parsley, neem, pineapple, Indian turnip
The following contraceptive methods are considered to be useful, however, there is no scientific evidence that they are 100% effective.
