Unplanned Pregnancy Prevention

By Dr. Jyoti Bhaskar Gynecology

Almost 85% of sexually active women who do not They use contraceptives or precautions become pregnant within 12 months. A woman can conceive at the time of breastfeeding, from 1-2 weeks after giving birth, and even at the time of menstruation. Pulling out his penis before ejaculation and periodic abstinence does not prevent the risk of conception or the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

You can avoid the risk of an unwanted pregnancy in two ways

  1. Plan B
  2. contraceptive precautions

Plan B is the method most widely used form of emergency contraception as:

  • has negligible side effects
  • is designed to avoid the risk pregnancy after sex
  • may be used without a prescription for women 18 years and older

So if you had sex with your partner and not use any precautions, then the option of emergency contraception is available for up to a period of 3 days. Plan B One-Step postpones the risk of pregnancy for up to 3 days after unprotected intercourse. It is not intended for regular use and does not provide protection against HIV or STIs. And also, you can not use if you are already pregnant.
Second, regular use of birth control pills can help prevent unwanted pregnancy risks. But just keep in mind that continued use of these birth control pills will not be enough and you will need to use condoms every time you enjoy sexual activity until the next cycle of menstruation.

Another alternative for emergency contraception is to get an intrauterine device (IUD) inserted by a doctor that it is possible up to five days after unprotected sex to help prevent the risk of pregnancy.

Emergency contraception is considered more effective the sooner it is taken.
