A paradoxical situation
Very often, this feeling passes all bounds, and turns into a fear, a person to the detriment of their health refuses medication, if he finds that they are made on the basis of the hormone in terms of paradoxical situation.
A striking example – of paradoxical situation or hormonal contraception. It is considered the most effective and progressive in the world. In Europe and North America, it is used about 60% of women of childbearing age in paradoxical situation. In addition to its main task of preventing unwanted pregnancy, she is able to solve even a very large number of problems – to normalize menstrual cycles, reduce the risk of some cancers, improve the condition of skin and hair.
But despite all the advantages of Russian girls and women do not like it and prefer to use a barrier method of contraception, which include condoms. At the same time few people pay attention to the fact that they have a very low degree of protection – according to various estimates from 56 to 85%. A condom can slip or break, which usually occurs due to incorrect or improper use or size.
What’s a girl or a woman in a similar paradoxical situation? Of course, there remains only the last line of defense – emergency contraception. But, until recently, all the products of this group contain the same active hormonal agent, and in an amount 150 times larger than the dose in a single tablet for routine contraceptive during handle such kind of paradoxical situation. Therein lies the paradoxical situation – not to take harmful, according to many, hormonal contraceptives, women used emergency contraceptives in one tablet which contains as much matter as would be enough for 5 months of admission.
Fortunately, now I have a choice. Among the drugs now have a fire contraception and hormonal agents. It should be noted that their effectiveness is not inferior, and sometimes superior to the old hormones. For example it is possible to note changes in the efficiency with time. Do hormones it is reduced by the end of the third day nearly doubled. That is why it is recommended to take them as soon as possible after unprotected sex. The effectiveness of non-hormonal agents is virtually independent of the time during the first day it is 99%, and by the end of the third decreases every 1%.
Another strong argument in favor of non-hormonal drugs is dependent on the reliability of drugs in body weight. In this relationship of hormones can clearly be seen – the greater the weight, the lower the reliability. In non-hormonal means of dependence is much weaker – in overweight it does not change, and if obesity is reduced, but not as much as that of hormones.
Therefore, if you still do not like hormones or treat them warily, get more information about the different means of emergency contraception. Perhaps it is you’ll never need, but you yourself will feel calmer and more confident for sure.
