To choose the best contraceptive method, it is important to consult a gynecologist in order to discuss the different options and choose the most appropriate one, as the indication may vary according to the reason why the contraceptive is being prescribed.

Contraceptive pills are the most popular method, however, as they must be taken every day, preferably at the same time, there is a risk of forgetting to take something, which could produce an embarrassment. For this reason, there are other methods such as implantation or IUD, for example, which ones can be used in these cases to avoid undesired embarrassment. Find out how to take contraceptive pills.

Although there are several contraceptive methods, the most effective and recommended is the use of condoms in sexual relationships, since, in addition to avoiding unwanted embarrassment, it also prevents sexually transmitted infections.

The contraceptive method that must be adopted by each woman depends on the reason why she seeks this, and must be indicated by the gynecologist. In this way, some of the reasons why the gynecologist may indicate another type of contraceptive are:

1. Not wanting to take the pastilla or forgetting to take it

In this case, it is better to use the implant, the adhesive, the monthly injectable or the vaginal ring, in addition to being able to indicate the use of the intrauterine device. This is because, forgetting to take the tablet or not taking it to follow the guidance of the gynecologist, it can increase the chances of unwanted embarrassment. Therefore, before the use of these contraceptive methods, there is no possibility of forgetting and there is greater security that the embarrassment will be avoided.

However, in the case of women who do not want to worry about the contraceptive, the most indicated methods are the implant or the IUD, for example.

2. The pill has many secondary effects

Some women report various side effects from the continuous use of the contraceptive pill, such as headache, nausea, changes in menstrual flow, weight gain and changes in mood, for example.

In these cases, the gynecologist can indicate the change of the pill or recommend the use of another contraceptive method, such as implanting the diaphragm, which is a ring-shaped gum device that prevents the entry of sperm into the uterus and that can be used several times for approximately 2 years. Know more about the diaphragm and how to use it.

3. Unprotected sexual intercourse

In the case of unprotected sexual relations, it is recommended that the woman take the pill the next day, up to 72 hours after the relationship, to prevent fertilization of the ovum by the sperm and implantation of the embryo in the uterus. She knows how the next day pill works.

4. Intense PMS

When a woman has strong symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), such as a migraine crisis, intense cramps, nausea and abdominal swelling and swelling in the legs, for example, the gynecologist may indicate the use of an IUD implant as a contraceptive method, but they are related to minor side effects, which may have a positive effect on the relief of PMS symptoms.

5. Recent embarrassment

After the baby’s birth, the gynecologist can recommend the use of some contraceptive methods, being indicated mainly for the continuous use tablet, which should be taken every day and does not generate major hormonal changes, being considered safe for women and in the interfering in milk production, for example.

6. Gynecological changes

In the case of some gynecological alterations, such as endometriosis or polycystic ovary, for example, the use of contraceptive methods such as the combined pill, which contains estrogen and progesterone, or the IUD, respectively, may be indicated by the gynecologist.
