Birth Control

In modern society, understanding and practicing the correct contraceptive methods have become the fundamental responsibility of every adult. Scientific contraception not only effectively prevents unplanned pregnancies but also avoids the trauma associated with induced abortions. Abortion can lead to various short-term and long-term physical and psychological adverse reactions, such as tissue remnants, infections, intrauterine adhesions, menstrual abnormalities, and emotional trauma. Therefore, adopting scientific contraceptive measures is key to maintaining health and fertility.

Common Contraceptive Methods

As a barrier-type contraceptive tool, condoms play a vital role in sexual activity. The advantages are that they are easy to use, cost-effective, and convenient to carry, and they are sensation-free for women. However, it’s worth noting that some individuals might be allergic to certain materials, and its use may slightly affect the sexual experience. To ensure safety and efficacy, it is recommended to purchase from regular channels and ensure its use throughout the entire activity.

Short-Acting Contraceptive Pills

This is an oral contraceptive option that requires continuous intake for 21 or 28 days to ensure its contraceptive effect. The advantages of short-acting birth control pills are their stable contraceptive effect and ease of use. But users need to take them at a fixed time every day, and there might be certain side effects. When choosing this contraceptive method, it’s imperative to follow the doctor’s advice, especially for women over 40.

Effective Contraceptive Methods

Contraception is a highly personal matter, and at CB Femi, we focus on women’s health, providing the following three highly effective contraceptive methods to address intimate concerns. Please note that the following contraceptive methods only prevent pregnancy and do not protect against or prevent sexually transmitted infections. Therefore, even when using these contraceptive measures, it is crucial to continue using condoms for added protection.

Intrauterine Device (IUD) Contraceptive
The IUD, also known as an intrauterine contraceptive device, is a birth control device placed inside the uterine cavity, primarily used by women who do not intend to conceive again shortly. The IUD can alter the uterine environment by increasing the viscosity of cervical mucus, hindering sperm penetration, and making it difficult for the fertilized egg to implant. Moreover, the IUD releases copper ions, which directly damage sperm and fertilized eggs, further enhancing its contraceptive effect. Materials used for IUDs include silicone rubber, plastic, and metal, among others.
Subdermal Implant
Subdermal implant contraception involves making an incision in the upper arm skin to bury a silicone capsule that releases hormones beneath the incision site. By steadily and continuously releasing progestin hormones into the bloodstream, this method suppresses ovulation and thickens the cervical mucus and uterine lining, preventing the union of sperm and egg to form a fertilized egg. Thus, achieving a contraceptive effect. The subdermal implant procedure does not require stitches, is relatively quick, and provides contraception for approximately five years after single implantation.
Short-Acting Contraceptive Pills
Short-acting contraceptive pills refer to a category of contraceptive pills that have a contraceptive effect within a few hours or days. These pills are formulated with estrogen and progestin hormones. By externally introducing these hormones, they block the body's own hormone secretion, inhibiting the release of ovulation signals, thus achieving short-term contraception. Due to the lower hormone levels in short-acting contraceptive pills, they need to be taken regularly and on time.
