Medications used for alzheimer’s disease
There are three types of contraception that you can use today: barrier methods (such as diaphragms or condoms), hormonal methods (including pills and patches) and intrauterine devices (IUDs).
Barriers such as diaphragms and condoms work by physically preventing sperm entering the uterus. Condoms also work well to stop the spread of sexually transmissible infections. Barrier methods have the major drawback of having to be used every time there is an intercourse in order for them be effective. This requires a great deal of consistency. Some people have an allergic reaction to latex, which could limit the use of condoms.
In hormonal methods like the Pill or the patch, hormones are taken to prevent ovulation. This makes them highly reliable when taken correctly – however a missed pill could result in an unintended pregnancy if not addressed quickly enough. These medications can take up to several months before they are fully effective, so it is important that you use other contraception during this time. Side effects that may occur include nausea, spotting in between periods and nausea.
Intrauterine devices (IUDs), are small, inserted in the uterus and contain copper or hormones. They prevent pregnancy via multiple mechanisms. This includes blocking sperm movements as well as preventing fertilized eggs from reaching IUD locations in the uterus due to ineffective contraception elsewhere on female reproductive tract. They provide highly reliable protection with very few side effects – however insertion can cause pain so analgesia may needed prior to insertion procedure . As well, removal may require the use of gynecological tools and there are risks associated with infection.
