In addition to my previous post, I would like to present the various forms of contraception available for the different needs of every man or woman who are sexually active. The dissemination of this kind of information is supported by most governments aiming to reduce the occurrence of STD or Sexually Transmitted Diseases and as methods of Family Planning.

The different mode of contraception has its advantages and disadvantages or side effects. You may choose whichever that would best suit your lifestyle or choice.

To start off, the traditional practices of birth control include abstinence, outercourse and withdrawal.

Abstinence may have a distinctive definition for different people. There are some who make a lifestyle out of it, and most that do dislikes sex, are not interested in having sex, or have some complex arguments such as morality or religion. For them, sex is a means of reproduction. People who maintain abstinence may engage into romantic relationships or masturbation.

Outercourse, as the name readily suggests, is an antonym of intercourse. This approach is also known as non-penetrative, meaning no penis-in-vagina intercourse or anal penetration. People practicing this enters into foreplay to satisfy their needs without the exchange of vaginal fluids, semen , breast milk or blood.

Withdrawal involves penetration, but the sperm is ejaculated outside the vagina. When the male feels that he is ready to come, he pulls his organ out. This is done to avoid the deposit of sperm into the vagina causing fertilization of the female egg. This practice requires a lot of discipline and would work best if the couple has had a discussion beforehand. Males having sexual health problems such as premature or unpredictable ejaculation should not use this method. Another problem posed by withdrawal is that the percentage of not getting a woman impregnated is not absolute. In small amounts, sperm may be secreted into the vagina before ejaculation. This is termed the preejaculatory fluid or precum.

These traditional methods are free and available to most. Though not as sure and safe as birth control and protection, the practices mentioned do not pose any medical or health risks. If you think that one of these would be best for you, go ahead, if none, you still have a lot of options- the modern methods of contraception.
