Birth Control: Part I
Various birth control methods have been employed throughout the ages to prevent pregnancy. Ancient Egyptians and Romans developed techniques, primarily through the use of herbs, that they believed prevented pregnancy. As women’s rights movements gained power and publicity, so did awareness of birth control. Currently in the US, there are dozens of different methods for males and females to choose from.

Some of the most common approaches to birth control require a prescription; however, many people have forgotten about the “natural” methods of pregnancy prevention.
- The rhythm method- This method requires the woman to meticulously keeps track of her menstrual cycle through all of its stages. Because women are only fertile during their brief period of ovulation, it is possible to avoid pregnancy. By recording her periods and monitoring the elasticity of her vaginal discharge, it is possible for a woman to determine when she is ovulating. During ovulation, vaginal intercourse is avoided.
- Abstinence-Abstinence is the only 100% guarantee against pregnancy. Abstinence is the practice of abstaining from intercourse altogether.
While these methods may have more “room for error” in terms of pregnancy prevention, they are not coupled with any unexpected side-effects.
