Contraception - Do Our Naija Women Believe It Is A Bad Thing?

I have in recent times become concerned at the rate of abortion  that have happened to my knowledge (i was also guilty a few times!) in our society. It makes me wonder whether our women consider contraception a useful tool in preventing pregnancy?  Or is there some other thinking about it?

Recently, i decided to break off my relationship with my gal in PH, for the simple reason she was TOTALLY opposed to taking contraceptives. Infact, the strength of her opposition to my suggestion came as a very big shock!

I would like to hear from both male and females, what the real situation is, or  more like what the real thinking is out there.

Lets take a look at the moral axis. Contraception even within marriage is bad.It is unafrican and dangerous to health. Abstinence for the unmarried, faithfullness and natural birth control for the married is the way.

condoms are not 100% effective. depending on the study they are between 75-95%when used and stored properly (below 80 degree f).  not all std's can be prevented with condom use.  fluid transmitted std's like the clap/hiv/hep c are preventable in most cases.  contact std's like herpes/crabs are NOT preventable.  hpv is debated but most believe it is not preventable and only 6 out of the 30+ variant/strains have symptoms  (warts) while another 5 cause cervical cancer and there have been ties to testicular cancer as well. nearly 80% of women will contract some strain of hpv in their lifetime - hpv vaccines are available to women and in some countries men.  family planning/bilings method is only effective if you know the actual date of ovulation which can happen at any time during a woman's cycle (it is possible to become pregnant while on your period) and can happen multiple times during a cycle.  if you know you and your partner are clean and faithful you can use hormonal birth control, copper iud's, spermicide, sponges, diaphragms or condoms as well as surgical methods (male is more effective, easier to reverse and less likely to cause complications).  some people view it as being agaist god and wrong especially when married to use birth control, but if it is agaist god to prevent a pregnancy wouldn't it also be agaist god to kill the child?

That why half of my clients are infected with HIV OR/AND STDS

They think condoms are not important, however I tell them condoms are not 100% effective even when use correctly per se, it still not 100% effective and the BEST SAFE SEX IS NO SEX OR SEX WITH ONE FAITHFUL PARTNER WHO IS NOT INFECTED.

naija women dont necessarily believe contraception is a bad thing, imo.

though a surprisingly high percentage of them are sexually active and do not use protection.

scary thought when you consider the implications and effects.

it's just a very vicious cycle.

i noticed people from strict religious backgrounds are more likely to be in this type of scenario. I wonder why.

Contraception causes a lot of fertility issues in women and not only fertility issues there are addition side effects

that may or may not be known. I always encourages my clients to use Natural birth control if they are with one partner and committed relationship preferably married. However, I know the rise of fornication predates marital sex so I always encourage a test before intimacy and effective condoms.

However, condoms does not prevent HPV (Human Papiloma Virus) warts or lesions that causes cervical cancer

in women. There are host of diseases that are not protected by condoms and I strongly suggest one faithful partner or abstinence (no sex until marriage).

The natural birth control is called Billings Method, which is simply avoiding sex during a woman peak stage during her cycle. The safest time for sex is the day of her last period up to ten days depending on how long her menses cycle some women cycle lasts 28 days until menstruation and some women 31 days so the best thing to do is count her cycle starting from her last day to the first day of her period record that and also look in her panties during the 10th day after her period to check for mucus if the mucus is thick that her fertility peak. Fertility peak usually last 3-4 days

depending on her cycle.

Health is more important then pleasure.

A lot of women (not specifically nigerian) don't like to use contraceptives (except when absolutely necessary) because some people experience side effects from them. I don't know if they have them in nigeria but you can have a coil fitted in you and you won't have to worry about getting pregnant for a couple of years.

But really, we should be asking you guys this question, "if you know a lot of nigerian women do not like contraceptives and you as men cannot make the decision to wear a condom, you shouldn't you be prepared for whatever happens afterwards"?
