Many women find the use of contraception appealing for peace of mind and to enjoy a fulfilling sexuality. Here is some information on the subject.
History tells us that around the world and throughout the ages, women have tried a great number of contraceptive methods, including some questionable ones. For example, some writings from the past indicate age-old use of oral potions, vaginal douches or vaginal suppositories containing dubious substances to say the least, in order to avoid pregnancy.
Fortunately, in this day and age, women can choose among a wide range of safe and effective options when it comes to contraception.

Contraception is a topic that warrants the attention of women, so they can make informed decisions.

Here is some information that is good to know about the various contraceptive methods:
Emergency oral contraception (“the morning-after pill”) is not considered a contraceptive method, strictly speaking. If, however, you did not use a contraceptive or if the contraceptive failed (for example, a broken condom), the morning-after pill can make it possible to avoid an unplanned pregnancy. Its effectiveness is optimal if it is taken within 72 hours after intercourse. The principle of “the earlier, the better” applies here. You must go to the pharmacy, and the pharmacist will meet with you privately in a closed office before giving you the emergency oral contraception.
Speak to your pharmacist for additional information about contraception and the available methods.
