[Fans’ letter] Mrs. Li is 55 years old. Her menstruation has not completely stopped. Although Mr. Zhang is similar, he still has a need for sexual life.In order to avoid unexpected pregnancy, Mrs. Li began to find some contraceptive methods.
She learned on the Internet that the so -called "safe" sex life will not get pregnant.She thinks that she is a woman who is nearly menopause, and the possibility of pregnancy should be very low, so she adopts a safe -term contraception method.
In violation of her wishes, a few months later, Mrs. Li began to have symptoms such as nausea and weakness. She thought that the symptoms of menopause were worsened, but she learned after the hospital examination that she was pregnant.The doctor explained that although she was older, as long as the menstruation did not stop completely, there was still the possibility of pregnancy.
Both Mrs. Li and Mr. Zhang were very surprised about the unexpected news.They originally thought that the "safe period" could really avoid pregnancy. Now it seems that this method is not so accurate.
1. Is it a safe period a few days after the holiday?
Understand the menstrual cycle and ovulation process:
The menstrual cycle is usually calculated from the first day of menstruation, until the first day of the next menstruation.A complete menstrual cycle is usually 28 days, but in fact, women’s menstrual cycle length may be different.Ovulation refers to the release of mature eggs by the ovary, so that it enters the fallopian tube and is prepared to be subjected to impulse.Ovulation usually occurs in the middle of the menstrual cycle, that is, about 14 days before the next menstruation starts.
Methods and restrictions for the safety period:
The "front 7 and post -8" rule refers to the relatively safer seven days and 8 days after the menstrual cycle during the menstrual cycle.For example, if a woman’s menstrual cycle is 28 days and her menstruation starts on the first day, then these days from the first to 7th and 21st to the 28th day, it is considered to be relatively safe.This calculation method may be inaccurate for women with irregular cycles.
The "front 3 rear 4" rule refers to the dangerous period 3 days before ovulation during ovulation.Women’s ovulation days are generally in the middle of the menstrual cycle. For example, women with a 28-day cycle ovulate about 14 days, so 11-18 days is a dangerous period.
The impact of different factors on the safety period:
The length of the menstrual cycle: The length of the menstrual cycle of women is different, so the calculation of the safety period will be different.A short cycle means that ovulation may occur shortly after the end of the holiday, thereby increasing the risk of conception.
Irregular menstrual cycle: If the menstrual cycle of women is irregular, the calculation of the safety period becomes more difficult.In this case, it is recommended that women use other more reliable contraception methods.
The stability of the menstrual cycle: If the menstrual cycle of women is relatively stable, the calculation of the safe period may be more accurate.Regularly record the beginning and end of the menstrual cycle can help women better understand their physiological characteristics, so as to better calculate the safety period.
Health and drug use: certain health problems and drugs may affect the menstrual cycle and ovulation process, which affects the calculation of the safety period.For example, polycystic ovary syndrome, endocrine disorders, and certain drugs (such as hormone drugs) may cause irregular menstrual cycle, so it is recommended to use other contraceptive methods in these cases.
Second, the benefits of safety period
Avoid accidental pregnancy:
a) Provide a natural contraceptive method: For those who want to avoid using contraceptives or contraceptives, a safe period is a natural contraception choice.It relies on understanding its own menstrual cycle and ovulation time, and achieves the purpose of contraception by avoiding sexual behavior at the time of possible conception.
b) Reduce dependence on contraceptives and appliances: For those who are sensitive or unwilling to use contraceptives or contraceptives, the safety period provides a choice to reduce these contraceptive methods.
c) Provide people who have contraceptives but cannot or are unwilling to use other contraceptive methods: The safety period provides a choice for people who have contraceptives but cannot or are unwilling to use other contraceptive methods.
Understand your own physiological health:
a) Understanding your reproductive health through observation of the menstrual cycle: Pay attention to changes in the menstrual cycle can allow women to better understand their own reproductive health.Any cyclical change or abnormalities may be an early instructions for reproductive health, such as ovulation problems, irregular menstruation, or signs of disease.By observing the menstrual cycle, women can detect potential problems earlier and take necessary medical measures early.
b) Identifying the ovulation problem or abnormal menstrual cycle, and early detection of potential reproductive health problems.
Promoting sex and emotion communication:
a) Provide a more intimate sex experience for husband and wife or partner: performing sexual behaviors during the safety period can increase the intimacy between husband and wife or partner.Due to the low risk of conception during a safe period, couples or partners can enjoy sexual life more relaxed and reduce psychological pressure caused by contraception.
b) Improve communication between husband and wife or partner.
Provide the diversity of contraception:
a) The safe period can be supplemented or alternative to other contraceptive methods: the safety period can be used as supplement or alternative to other contraceptive methods, providing more choices.For those who are unwilling to use contraceptives or contraceptives for a long time, they can increase the reliability of contraception based on their own conditions in conjunction with other contraceptive methods.
b) Provide another choice for people who have special needs or sensitivity to contraceptives and appliances: some people may have special health needs, or sensitive to contraceptives and appliances.
A few days after the holidays are not necessarily a safe period, because ovulation and conception vary from person to person.For those who choose to use the safe period, they should understand their limitations and combine other contraceptive methods to ensure the effectiveness of contraception and a healthy sex life.Gynecologists should provide comprehensive contraceptive knowledge when consulting and guiding patients to help women make wise decisions and maintain the quality of good health and sexual life.
