Ways To Prevent Pregnancy Without Using Condoms Or Contraceptive Pills

When it comes to preventing pregnancy, the two most popular methods recommended by healthcare professionals are using condoms and contraceptive pills. These two methods may be effective in preventing pregnancy when used correctly, but they may not be the best choice for everybody. Fortunately, there are other ways to prevent pregnancy without using condoms or contraceptive pills.

In this article which is according to healthline, we provide an overview of other methods of preventing pregnancy that do not involve the use of condoms or contraceptive pills. Following these methods care provide a safe and effective way to avoid unwanted pregnancies.


Spermicide is a contraception product that contains chemicals that kill or disable spèrm. Spermicide is available in cream, film, foam, or jelly form and can be easily purchased in most pharmacies. Spermicide should be inserted into the vagina shortly before intercourse and can provide protection up to one hour.

The effectiveness of spèrmicide varies depending on how it is used, but when used correctly it can be highly effective in preventing pregnancy. When compared to condoms, spermicide has a slightly higher failure rate (13-28% versus 2-15%), but it is still considered a safe and effective form of contraception when used correctly.

Withdrawal Method

The withdrawal method, or "pull-out" method, is a common form of contraception in which you withdraw your pènis from your partner's vagina before ejàculation. This prevents the spèrm from entering the vàgina and reduces the risk of pregnancy.

The withdrawal method is generally considered an unreliable form of contraception due to the fact that it relies on the man's ability to pull out in time. Studies have found that approximate 4 out of every 100 women who rely on this method will become pregnant each year. However, this rate can be significantly reduced to 2 out of every 100 if withdrawal is done perfectly every time.

Ovulation Detection

Ovulation detection is a form of contraception that relies on tracking your menstrual cycle to determine when you are ovulating when your egg is released from your ovaries. If a couples abstains from sèx during the time when ovulation is likely to occur, the chances of pregnancy are greatly reduced.

If used correctly, ovulation detection can be an effective method of preventing pregnancy, but it is not foolproof. This method relies on being able to accurately detect ovulation, which can be difficult for many women.

Fertility Awareness

Fertility awareness is an umbrella term for tracking health data to determine when ovulation is likely to occur. Common methods include tracking cervical mucus, body temperature, and other markers to determine when ovulation is likely to occur, which can then be used to avoid sèxual intercourse during those days.

Fertility awareness can be a highly effective form of contraception when used correctly and consistently. Studies have found that 1 in every 100 women who rely on fertility awareness as their sole form of contraception will become pregnant every year.

Implants and Intrauterine Device

Implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs) are forms of contraception that are inserted into the body to prevent pregnancy. Implants (such as Implanon) are small rods that are inserted into the arm and can provide protection for up to 3 years. IUDs are small devices that are inserted into the uterus and can last from 3 to 10 years.

The effectiveness of implants and IUDs vary, but studies have found that these methods have an extremely low failure rate (0.2% for implants and 0.8% for IUDs). Since these methods are inserted into the body and require a doctor's appointment, they are not as easily accessible as condoms or contraceptive pills.

When it comes to preventing pregnancy, condoms and contraceptive pills are the top recommended methods. However, there are other ways to prevent pregnancy without using condoms or contraceptive pills. Some methods, like spermicide and ovulation detection, are more popular than others. All methods should be used correctly and consistently to be effective. If you are considering any of these methods, speak with your healthcare provider to discuss your options and determine whether or not these methods are right for you.
