Emergency Contraception
After a long day time to relax.....And what could be more interesting than returning to my brand new blog.Again today came across 3 cases of PCOD.God,Suddenly how come so many women are having PCOD???
Another thing which I wish to write about is the emergency contraceptive 'misuse'.They way it is misused it takes me by surprise .After T.V. commercials couples are using these pills as indiscriminately as candies.But it isn't so should ideally use it only once a month.It leads high rate of failure.Increased risk of ectopic pregnancy(pregnancy outside uterus).It makes the periods go haywire.One needs to have a regular method of contraception.Restrict the use of these pills to only real emergencies like a condom rupture.
And a fact which is not so popularly known,CuT,Multiload etc can be used as a more reliable method of contraception and it is effective up to 5 days of unprotected act unlike 72 hrs for these pills.
