Condoms are categories into two type one is male type condom and one is female type condom. Male type condom can by many material such as latex, plastic and animal membrane. As the function is just to act as a wrapper to stop the semen enter to the vagina. The advantages are easy to use and getting protection against sexually infection. The disadvantage is it may tear or break without improper use. For female condom, it is an internal use condom as the condom needed to put inside the vagina with a device to hold the place. The advantage is protected form HIV infection and disadvantage is it very hard to put the condom correctly. For barrier birth control method also have spermicide, diaphragm, and sterilization. Spermicide is a gel type barrier for birth control, as it available in several forms for personal convenience and disadvantage is it may be difficult to use because it have to apply immediately before intercourse. Then, diaphragm is a domed-shape rubber cup that for female user only and there is having the spermicidal jelly inside the dome. The jelly is to kill the sperm cells. The advantage is it can be keep for two or three months if clean and stored properly and disadvantage is required to go to clinic or physician for the fitting. Sterilization is the way that can be done by male or female as it only needed to cut the tube lead to the scrotum and join to urethra (vasectomy), as
Some people feel that it should be the female’s responsibility to provide the contraception during sex because females have more options’ then men do. Females can choose from birth control pills, the birth
This little lesson on how to properly use a condom can help prevent sexually active people from getting an STD. Some other protection methods are female condoms, sponges, and diaphrams. When it comes down to choosing a good protection method, there are lots of places people can go to to get information.
Frederick Hollick from The Marriage Guide stated that some forms were more frowned upon than others. The best form of prevention is stated within the Bible and has been practiced for thousands of years. It states, “If the seminal fluid not be placed within the Vagina, of course there can be no conception…,” (Doc. #8). On the other hand, men and women enjoyed sexual relations and intercourse and many did not practice abstinence. Therefore, there had to be other options for safe intercourse. For men, they had the option to wear a condom, which is “The employment of covering to the male, in the form of a thin skim tube, called a Condom, is of course efficacious as a preventive…,” (Doc. #8). People put ample trust into condoms for ‘safe sex’. The only way a condom would not work is if it was faulty and there was a hole that seminal fluid could leak out of to cause conception. Another form of prevention for men is, “…coitus interruptus, or male withdrawal before ejaculation,” (Doc. #8). This form is also known as ‘pulling out’. If men withdrawal before they ejaculate, a women will not be able to conceive. This form of prevention is not the best because a mistake can be made at anytime. If a mistake is made and a women conceives from intercourse, women have the choice to get an abortion. An abortion is “… The life of the fetus or embryo shall be destroyed in the woman’s womb or that a premature birth thereof be caused,” (Doc. #7). When a women decides to follow through with an abortion, they are doing so at their own risk of their life. An abortion can take a toll on a women’s body and life for the
Contraception has been around for thousands of years. Several methods and technologies have occurred over these years to help further the effectiveness of contraception. Contraceptives come in all shapes and sizes and each one has different qualities including, their strengths and weaknesses. The most commonly used contraceptive is a condom, which helps prevent pregnancies and the transmission of sexual diseases. One large advance for contraception is birth control, which falls almost completely under women. Only two forms of contraceptives are for men; condoms and vasectomies. Providing a birth control for men, knowing the chemical abilities to
The Female Condom that is called Femy, Protective and Reality is the least favorite of all types of contraceptives. It is made of polyurethane, or soft plastic, and protects against STDs. It is inserted deep into the vagina, over the cervix. Pretty much that idea of putting a plastic bag inside of you. The female condom can be out into place up to eight hours before sex and only cost about $2-$4.
Who in here has heard of or even know what the term birth control is? According to medicinenet.com, birth control is the use of any practices, methods, or devices to prevent pregnancy from occuring in sexually active women. Today, I will be talking about a couple of methods of birth control which include: the pill, the patch, and the implant. Another method I will be talking to you about isn’t always considered a form of birth control, but it actually is; condoms. My goal today is to not only inform you of the many birth controls but to also encourage you to look at the pros and the cons of every method if you are using contraception. Birth control is a very broad topic with many alternatives which can impact your lifestyle in many ways, therefore you should consider these alternatives before applying any form of contraceptive into your body and find the method that works best for you.
The first position will present the benefits that are created with widely accessible free forms of birth control. Condoms protect against pregnancy and currently are the only type of birth control that protects against STDs. Beside preventing pregnancies, it has several other health benefits for women such as regulating menstrual cycles, creating lighter flows, lessen acne, and limits the growth of endometrium.
In chapter 5, I learned about different ways of birth control. For males there are condoms for a barrier method. While for women, they have many barrier the methods and birth control pills. Male condoms fit over the penis, while the women condoms are single-use nitrile sheath for internal use during vaginal intercouse. Both condoms have options to use spermicides which is a substance that kills the sperm. Aside from condoms women have diaphragm, which is a latex, cup-shape that blocks access to the uterus. If the device is left more than 48 hours the women can get toxic shock syndrome which is when a specific bacterial toxins multiply and spread in the bloodstream. There are also oral contraceptives which are pills that contain hormones that
Many college students may believe that using a condom is awkward or embarrassing, however, there is no question as to the benefits they convey on the person and partner using them. First, condoms are 98 percent effective in preventing pregnancy when used consistently and correctly (www.siecus.org). An unwanted pregnancy can dramatically affect ones goals and ambitions in college, by simply using a condom this can almost always be avoided. Secondly, using a latex condom to prevent transmission of HIV is more than 10,000 times safer than not using a condom. Also, Several studies have demonstrated that condoms can protect against the transmission of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis, and may
I also never take birth control because of reasons so it is hard for me to write this subject. I used to think birth control can prevent STDs which it is sexually transmitted diseases. I was wrong. Birth control like pills contains hormones that control functions in the body and prevent pregnancy. The pills thickening the mucus around the cervix so it is hard for sperm to enter the uterus and reach eggs to fertilize. They have to take it every day at the same time or it won't work. STDs like gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, genital warts, and genital herpes are infections that spreading by sexual contract with someone who has STDs. The most common STDs in the United States is chlamydia which has no symptoms. They need to protect
Another effective form of birth control is a device called the diaphragm. It is considered to be a barrier method because it prevents sperm from entering the uterus through the cervix. This birth control option as been around for many years. “The device is a soft latex or silicone dome with a flexible rim that is placed in the vagina to cover the cervix” (Hawkins, Roberto-Nichols and Stanley-Haney, 2016. Pg. 60). A diaphragm cannot be bought over the counter, the patient must go to their provider to be properly sized and fitted. A provider will select a diaphragm based on a patient’s vaginal muscle tone and the anatomic shape of their vagina and pubic bone (Carcio and Secor, 2015). Diaphragm range in sizes from 50 to 105 mm in diameter, but
As a mother with five children, I believe your best option is implantable devices. Birth control pill will clear your skin, ease blood flow and pain. The risk with taking the pill are reducing libido (sex desire), mess up your cycle making it irregular, make you gain weight and blood clots. The increase of estrogen makes your blood thicken (Tarkan, 2008). Mechanical barriers will prevent sperm from entering the uterus. The barriers include diaphragms male/female condoms, and cervical cap. The barriers help to have safe sex, preventing STDS. Diaphragm and cervical cap are meant to be put in hours before sex, do not need to be token out for hours. Barriers do not protect against STIs, can cause a urinary tract infection, and need to be placed
Are you interested in birth control are know someone who is? Are you stuck or know someone who is stuck in between which birth control to use? Well, being a woman myself I have found that using the birth control Implanon was the best birth control for me only because it is convenient, mess free, and it last for up to three years. People around the world have used birth control methods for thousands of years. These methods include things such as condoms, pills, shots, and many other things that have advanced though out the years. Today, the world has many safe and effective birth control methods available to us, however all birth controls do not work the same for everyone.
Condoms, as defined by Delvin (2012), are “sheathes that trap the sperm when a man climaxes.” Crall (1999) explains the meaning of a contraceptive as “a method, device or pharmaceutical drug that prevents pregnancy.” Both are used in reducing the chances of pregnancy. Young people today especially high
