Natural Family Planning
Today, men and women have several different methods that they can use to prevent pregnancy. One of the most common methods of birth control is oral contraceptives. However, some women do not like the way that oral birth control affects their bodies. Thus, they are turning to different methods such as natural family planning.
It is no wonder that some women are hesitant to use oral contraceptives. Some birth controls, such as YAZ, can cause serious health problems such as cerebral hemorrhages and liver tumors. Also known as Yasmin and Ocella, this oral contraceptive has been linked to adverse effects that can disrupt your life. If you believe that you have developed health issues due to YAZ, you should contact a YAZ attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.
How Does Natural Family Planning Work?
Natural family planning avoids oral and physical contraceptives like birth control pills and condoms, yet the goal is still to prevent unwanted pregnancy. To do so, couples pay attention to the times that a woman ovulates. Because ovulation is the time during which women release eggs from their ovaries, intercourse right before and after ovulation should be avoided to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
There are two ways in which women can track ovulation. They include:
- Mucus method – checking the consistency of the cervical mucus. If it is stretchy and clear, it signifies ovulation.
- Symptothermal method – keeping track of body temperature. An increase of .9º Fahrenheit typically occurs with ovulation.
While natural family planning can be a hassle for some people, it does help you avoid health problems that can accompany the oral contraceptives YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella. If you have suffered from the serious side effects associated with YAZ, such as stroke, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
