Most modern women and men share the conviction that the birth of a child should be planned, choosing the most convenient time. Although, ways to prevent the pregnancy are different. There are a variety of hormonal drugs and barrier contraceptives, but some don't want to use them for one reason or another. At the same time, it is vital to prevent the occurrence of unwanted pregnancy. Very often a scary thought about unwanted pregnancy may spoil the joy of love. Any woman, barely hearing the word "abortion" involuntarily shudders, in spite of highly qualified doctors, painkillers, and rehabilitation hospitals.

The truth is that no drinking of salty water, neither douching with it can help you to avoid getting pregnant. Still douching may have some positive effects, as it mechanically washes out the sperm. However, it should be done during the first few minutes after sex, while sperm stays thick for a few moments. Once it gets thin, it starts heading for the goal with a high speed. Female hormones in your own body activate the sperm cells and make them move faster. Actually, it develops the speed of 45 kilometers per hour. So, yes, it is fast and if you wish to use douching, use it right after the sex.

Now, why there are no positive effects of salt and water after sex? Well, just because our body cells have special prevention strategy for coping with too much salt. They simply do not let it into the cells for a while and fight it. So, drinking a few glasses of salty water would not do the trick of preventing the unwanted pregnancy.

Ways to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex

  • Emergency contraception

Emergency contraception

It’s time to use emergency contraception. Mostly these are the pills you take after the unplanned event to prevent the undesirable conception. They are also called the “morning after pills”. These pills can be taken right after the sex or during the upcoming 5 days. They do not produce 100 percent guarantee for not conceiving the child. However, they lower the risks.

These pills are not abortion pills, as they do not contain mifepristone. This chemical evokes abortion, which according to the Bible is murder. However the next morning pills contain high doses of hormone, which lessens the chances of an egg getting fertilized with sperm.

This is an important piece of information for all ladies. If you take the hormone pills, you can stop ovulation and prevent pregnancy.

As it was mentioned, abortion pills are different and they are not an option. So, when you shop for such pills, read the instruction carefully.

Condoms

Guys seem to get comfortable with the idea of having a condom in their pocket or bag just in case. However, most girls are ashamed of having one.

So the undesirable pregnancy might turn out to be the least of your problems after the unprotected sex.

So, the best way to stay well is to avoid it all together. Stay in purity or mate with your husband. Still, if that is not the case, get armed with a condom. Stop by a shop and get few just to have. Carry them around in your purse and do not be ashamed of it. You are the one responsible for your own health and wellbeing.

I think married couples can use non abortive methods to prevent pregnancy if they are no ready to have a baby. It is a legitimate birth control method to have a good life and to limit the number of kids you have and save your health.

I have not heard of such strange way, but I think, in this matter should not rely on untested means. If you really do not want become pregnant, you should think in advance about methods of contraception. I can say, that there are two ways, that are more acceptable. It condoms and pills. With condom everything is clear, but pills need be careful. Select remedy, that suits, you must first talk to doctor. He will select remedy, that best help. You have be careful and cautious, when you do not want unwanted pregnancy. It is better prevent it than do surgery.

Not to get pregnant without protection, there's another way, in a sense, the most reliable is the withdrawal. The technique how not to get pregnant without a condom and how not to get pregnant without contraception is to remove the penis immediately before ejaculation. Invite Your man in You not to come. In that moment, when he feels that close to the end, let's just remove the member from the vagina. It can finish act from the outside, or did you just go on a different kind of caresses. So, You will have the confidence that the main flow of semen into the body is not hit.

Probably would be better to use condom earlier than to force your body to such medieval methods. You know that once i have read that woman are putting themselves in hot baths in order to give themselves an abortion. It was in 20th century but how stupid was that. I was astonished to learn such thing. And now girls are using lemon to prevent pregnancies in a very odd way. The moral here is that you should think twice before engaging in the sexual intercourse with another human being because consequences can be dreadful

If you do not want to get pregnant after sex we should think about it in advance. There are many kontsratseptyviv for zapobihannnya pregnancy, the pill, condoms, spirals and others. Spryntsuvannya water with salt - a myth. Some women just by coincidence could not get pregnant, that's all.But if you prospryntsuyetes water with a tablespoon of vinegar (1 teaspoon to 0.5 liters of water) immediately after sex, the pregnancy will not be exact. Acid kills sperm 100%. But this harmful effect on the mucous membrane of the vagina.

about the use of salt and water as protection from pregnancy first of all I hear, and it is clear that this is complete nonsense. Douching really is bad if it is misused, often use this method. So probably one of the most known and effective methods is the establishment of a special spiral in the uterus, birth control pills but their use is also harmful to many as it affects the hormones, and well-known way of course condoms, the main thing that from the intense friction they are not torn or defective.

Of course, that salt and water can produce an effect similar to contraceptive means, but I think it's all very individual for each woman. There is no guarantee that this method is able to help everyone in all situations. However, we know that scientists have calculated to date, a sufficient number of contraceptives, but no scientist people are not able to say that one means is able to work always. Coffee is also a contraceptive, however, it also individually. I, for example, not using contraception, if not convinced that these products are able to help me in this or that situation.
