Using birth control but still ‘getting pregnant’, why?

“Sex” is often exciting and tempting, but it can also bring sadness and unsatisfactory outcomes. There are many couples who have used contraception but still have an unwanted pregnancy for the following reasons:
Falling in love safely and without consequences is a common concern of many couples. However, when trying to prevent pregnancy, many people choose methods with a high failure rate. To avoid unintended “backpacking” or carrying sexually transmitted diseases , you should not rely too much on the following protections.

Calculate the “safe” day according to the menstrual cycle or ejaculate “sperm” out
According to reproductive health experts, these two methods of contraception have a high rate of unintended pregnancy, although there are currently no exact statistics.

Many women are confident in calculating the day to have sex safely based on their menstrual cycle. In theory, this calculation could work. Normally, the egg will be released around the 14th day of the cycle. That is, if you have a period on the 1st, then the day of ovulation is 14 days back, ie on the 16th of the month.

However, in reality, not all women have a regular cycle. Moreover, the cycle can be changed by many factors such as environment, eating, stress… Therefore, having sex only on days not around the time of ovulation has a high risk.

The same goes for birth control by external ejaculation . Almost everyone knows that sperm is released during ejaculation. But one thing few people know is that from the beginning of love, the mucus secreted from the male genitals contains a little sperm. Therefore, even if the man actively exits outside the “forbidden zone”, it is not safe enough. Not to mention, sometimes because of too much enthusiasm or lack of self-control, men do not “withdraw” in time.

Regular use of emergency contraception
According to obstetricians and gynecologists , many women choose this drug because it is easy to buy and use. It can be a way of “fire fighting” for times when falling in love is not ready or taking advantage of stealth or when forgetting to use other methods.

However, this is one of the methods of contraception with a high failure rate and many side effects.

The emergency contraceptive pill has the same ingredients as the daily pill, but the dosage is up to 4 times higher. It inhibits ovulation and prevents the egg from attaching to the lining of the uterus, thereby preventing conception. This drug has a relatively low effectiveness in preventing pregnancy (about over 70%). The effect will also decrease with repeated use.

Not only that, women taking the drug can also experience many side effects such as menstrual disorders , menorrhagia, headache, dizziness …
