Barrier methods of contraception are very popular and reliably protect against both unwanted pregnancy and of sexually transmitted diseases by. Unfortunately, not all manufacturers produce high-quality condoms, it can lead to the fact that the condom can tear at the crucial moment. What to do?
What dangers arise when the condom breakage
Poor-quality condoms are produced mainly Asian countries (except Japan, in this country with the quality mark), they are cheaper than European and North American products, and more eager.
If a condom breaks, then there are two dangers: an unplanned pregnancy and the possibility of contracting a sexually transmitted disease by (and sometimes a whole bunch of diseases). And as such cases are fairly common, and developed a special emergency measures to eliminate the consequences of the "accident."
How to prevent an unplanned pregnancy if the condom breaks
If a condom breaks and semen got into the vagina, the first thing you need to think about the severity of the incident. This means that a woman has to remember what she has today is the day of the menstrual cycle
The days of the menstrual cycle: Four phases
. As is well known, it is impossible to conceive, starting with 2-3 days after ovulation (release of the egg from the time of the ovary, which is in the middle of the menstrual cycle) until the next menstrual period (time of absolute sterility). At other times, the sperm have a chance to wait for the egg.
If the "accident" occurred in a dangerous time, it is necessary to remove sperm from the vagina, and the sooner the better. To do this, take a shower and then prosprintsevatsya.
To douche better fit slightly acidic solutions (lemon juice, vinegar) - they move slowly and sperm will die. Before douche, you need to try the taste of the prepared solution: it should only be slightly acidic, very acidic solution may cause a burn delicate mucous membrane of the female genital organs. After douching vagina must enter spermicides - spermicides (farmateks, kontseptrol, Delphine, ortho, koromeks), which are produced in the form of creams, foams, suppositories, tablets, topical. Does this method is an absolute guarantee that a woman will not get pregnant? Of course not.
Therefore it is necessary to continue the emergency prevention of pregnancy. For this special hormones are released, for example, postinor
Postinor - used very carefully!
Which contains a synthetic analogue of the female hormone progesterone, which suppresses the activity of other female sex hormones - estrogen, which prevents pregnancy. One pill Postinor better take immediately (but you can do it and for three days), and the second 12 hours later. The drug is not harmless, it can cause hormonal disturbances.
Instead Postinor can be used and combined hormonal contraceptives, but it is already being done by a gynecologist appointment. Within a few days after the "accident" can be introduced into the uterus intrauterine device (IUD) - it also makes only a gynecologist.
But every woman should know clearly that emergency birth control methods (other than the IUD, it can be used continuously) should not be used as a permanent means of contraception, it can lead to severe damage of the female genitalia.
How to prevent the disease, sexually transmitted infections, if the condom broke
No less dangerous gap in condom if sexual contact occurred with a random man, and have no confidence in his health. In this case, it is possible to become infected with sexually transmitted infections (STIs). These infections are sexually transmitted diseases (syphilis, gonorrhea
Gonorrhea - self-ruled
, Chancroid, and venereal limogranulema granuloma venereum), and infections such as ureaplasmosis
Ureaplasmosis - inflammation of the urogenital system
, Chlamydia, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, HIV infection.
If you hold an emergency prevention in the first two hours after sexual intercourse, it is usually possible to prevent most STIs.
If your partner was unreliable, it is better to apply to the point of personal prophylaxis in STI clinics, where men spend prevention of a 2% aqueous solution protargola, as well as drugs such as gibitan, tsidipol. Preventing women held drug solution of mercury salts, silver nitrate, potassium permanganate, and tsidipol gibitanom. Do not neglect such prevention, if there is no confidence in your partner.
Condom - reliable means, but in order to avoid unpleasant situations with his break, you need to choose quality products.
