Many women in Facebook are talking about IUD (intra-uterine device, to prevent pregnancy) that is still covered by health insurance and might not be covered under Trump presidency. Be sure to have your doctor give you regular check up (yearly) with regards to your IUD. I will not suggest IUD to my daughter. Some prefer IUD because they experience more side effects with birth control pills. Examine all options and research well any contraceptives in the market. My mom’s IUD caused her to have ectopic pregnancy which is life threatening.
How not to get pregnant
During the first day of your menstruation, count this day as day 1. Between day 8 to day 14, check the mucus that comes out of your OS (vagina). If it stretches by 2 cm and egg white in consistency, that day is your fertile day (day 12 -14). If that day is day 13, having sex on day 12-13 will give you a boy and a girl during days 9-11. So use condom or abstain from days 9 to 14 if you do not want to get pregnant. Taking 6000 mg per day (500 mg every 3hrs) of Vit C during that week makes the uterus inhospitable for conception.
Adverse Effecgts of IUD from Wiki
Regardless of containing progestogen or copper, potential side effects of intrauterine devices include expulsion, uterus perforation, pelvic inflammatory disease (especially in the first 21 days after insertion), as well as irregular menstrual pattern. A small probability of pregnancy remains after IUD insertion, and when it occurs there is a greater risk of ectopic pregnancy.
Substantial pain that needs active management occurs in approximately 17% of nulliparous women and approximately 11% of parous women. In such cases, NSAID are evidenced to be effective. However, no prophylactic analgesic drug have been found to be effective for routine use for women undergoing IUD insertion.
Also, IUDs with progestogen confer an increased risk of ovarian cysts, and IUDs with copper confer an increased risk of heavier periods.
Menstrual Cup companies recommend that women with IUDs who are considering using menstrual cups should consult with their gynecologists before use. There have been rare cases in which women using IUDs dislodged them when removing their menstrual cups, however, this can also happen with tampon use.
