Advice on contraception
Doctor Answers (2) on Advice on contraception
Appreciate you for asking this question. IN FACT ALL RECENTLY MARRIED COUPLE SHOULD READ THIS QUESTION AND ANSWER.
1. WHEN you are planning to postpone pregnancy , get a fertility evaluation for both.
Husband can get a semen analysis and wife can undergo a gynaec check up with ultrasound scan.
IF BOTH OF YOU ARE NORMAL THEN CAN PLAN FOR PREGNANCY LATER.
SUPPOSING HUSBAND'S SEMEN ANALYSIS IS INADEQUATE AND WIFE IS HAVING OVULATION PROBLEMS OR ANY OTHER ISSUES PREGNANCY SHOULD NOT BE POSTPONED.
2.If everything is normal then condoms are the best.
If wife is having regular periods ,say of 28 days then the safe days are from day5 to day 9 and from day 20 to day 28 .
NEXT OPTION IS CONTINUOUS LOW DOSE OC PILL.which are very safe for short time say 6 months to 1 year ,but should be started after consulting a gynaecologist. IT WILL NOT AFFECT FUTURE FERTILITY.
3.I PILL should be used only in case of emergency and preferably married couple should try to avoid unless continuation of pregnancy is risky.
4.Any mode of MTP either medical or surgical, has got its own side effects which can be detrimental to the future fertility.
HOPE I HAVE ANSWERED ALL YOUR QUESTIONS.WISHING BOTH OF YOU A HAPPY AND BLESSED MARRIED LIFE.
