Best Natural Birth Control Methods: What Works Really?
Best natural birth control method is difficult to define. What I perceive as the ‘best method’ may not be ideal for you. Moreover, the best method is definitely not the happy method!
For both me & my husband it was first time, we had no prior sex-perience. So, first time we had unprotected sex. I think it lasted for less than 2 minutes. I sat on him with full excitement and he ejaculated within minutes. Though I did not experience any orgasm I was very happy to satisfy my hubby!
I was very tight and his penis was very sensitive to touch. Infact, when I first sucked him after our engagement he came in my mouth within minutes too. [before engagement we only hugged and kissed] Read my intimacy tips here.
This blog post is all about natural birth control method we used in our married life.
Method 1: Abstinence from Sex
The best natural form of birth control is abstinence. Abstinence is the only surefire way to avoid unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. It is completely free and does not involve any potentially harmful hormones or other drugs.
The only downside is that it requires absolute discipline and commitment. The temptation to have sex can be difficult to resist, so it may not be the best option for everyone.
You can still enjoy intimacy through hand, finger and oral job. When passion heats-up things can still go out of control, so be careful!
Method 2: The Withdrawal
Another natural form of birth control is the withdrawal method. Withdrawal involves the man withdrawing his penis from the vagina before ejaculation, thus preventing the sperm from entering the vagina.
This method is claimed to be 70-90% effective when used correctly, but it can be difficult to time it correctly and it can be unreliable. Additionally, it does not protect against STIs.
When a man is highly aroused his penis releases lubricative fluid called ‘pre-cum’. This pre-cum fluid may have some sperm cells too. Therefore, this form of sexual intercourse is risky. For safety, it’s better to use lubricative spermicide which kills sperm.
The main benefit is that you can still enjoy raw-touch and sensation for atleast few minutes. We never enjoyed sex with condom. For him it was difficult to keep his erection with condom-on and for me it wasn’t feeling good.
Method 3: The Fertility Awareness
Another natural form of birth control is the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM). FAM involves tracking your cycle and avoiding unprotected sex on your most fertile days.
FAM is highly effective when used correctly and consistently, but it also has some drawbacks. It requires careful tracking and can be difficult to remember to do. Additionally, it does not protect against STIs, and there is room for human error in its application.
STI (sexually transmitted infections) is not an issue in you are in a long term committed relationship and practicing monogamy.
Method 4: The Hormonal IUD
This is not natural but hormonal birth control system. I have been using Mirena IUD for the past 5 years and recommend it. It’s better than sterilization. I tried copper IUD but had to remove it due to abnormal bleeding and other side effects.
Mirena IUD is very effective. Ofcourse, it takes 2-3 months to get used to it. You may also have to deal with frequent yeast infection. That’s the only downside.
Enjoy Sex without Pregnancy Risk
Yes, sex and intimacy is very important for strong mutually satisfying relationship. Pregnancy is a beautiful phase of women’s life.
After having kids it’s still important to keep fire in bedroom!
The best way to enjoy sex & intimacy without the risk of an unwanted pregnancy is to use contraception. Contraception is any method used to prevent pregnancy. There are a variety of different types of contraception, such as condoms, hormonal methods, and permanent sterilization.
Though we never liked condoms, it is one of the most popular and effective methods of contraception. Condoms act as a barrier between sperm and the egg, thus preventing sperm from entering the uterus and fertilizing the egg.
Best Natural Birth Control Method: Conclusion
Condoms are relatively easy to use, have no side effects, and are very affordable. They can be purchased over the counter in most pharmacies and supermarkets. Another type of contraception is hormonal methods.
Hormonal methods work by preventing ovulation and/or making the uterine lining inhospitable for an egg. Common hormonal methods include the birth control pill, the patch, the shot, and the ring.
Ultimately, birth control method should be adopted with mutual consent.
