Understanding the different type of contraception
Contraception allows individuals and couples to attain control on their desired number of children and the spacing and timing of their births. As per the PRB 2015 World Population Data Sheet, UK has an impressive 84% of Contraceptive prevalence rate.
The most common means by which couples regulate fertility have changed from methods requiring control or cooperation by men. You might be delighted to know about emergency contraceptive measures as well which can be used when contraception was not used or failed to prevent pregnancy up to 72 hours after sex.
Fortunately, today there are many ways to help prevent pregnancy. Each method of birth control is unique.
The chart speaks for itself; condoms are by far the most effective methods of contraception. There are now two types of condom: male and female. However, in 2014, male caps still remained far more commonly used than female ones. Let’s learn about them in detail.
Condoms at a glance
A Condom is a pocket-friendly, easy to buy and use contraception tool. It is a thin sheath made from latex, plastic or lambskin that covers the penis during intercourse. Although the above table shows that condoms are less effective than the pill, they are the only form of contraception that can prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections. It’s just a matter of consistent and correct use to get maximum protection. They prevent body fluids from mixing when two people have sex. Whether it is a vaginal, anal or oral sex, they are right for every time.
Sign of a good condom
Condoms provide a great level of protection against STIs because they protect both partners against exposure to the other's body fluids which are transmitted primarily through contact with infected skin or with mucosal surfaces. Because these surfaces of skin are walled by a condom, it helps in a lesser degree of getting sexually infected. A good condom is made of latex or polyurethane. Latex condoms are considered highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV.
