- A contraceptive injection.
- Get the emergency (morning-after) pill.
The methods below are less suitable for sex workers because of the high pregnancy risk.
- The pessary or diaphragm
- The pessary is a cap-like rubber device.
- It is placed over the uterine opening before sex and used together with a spermicide.
- The cap needs to be left in place for at least 8 hours after sex for effective protection.
- Some sex workers use the device during menstruation as a collection vessel for menstrual blood and not as a birth control method.
- Spermicide creams, tablets, gels and foams
- These methods do not provide effective protection against pregnancy and damage the mucosa of the vagina when used regularly.
- That is why they should only be used together with a condom or a cap.
- Coïtus interruptus
- Withdrawing the penis before ejaculation is not a reliable birth control method.
- Some sperm that can still be released before actual withdrawal.
- This method gives you no control because you don’t know when the customer is going to ejaculate.
- Calendar and temperature method
- Periodic abstinence means that you don’t have sex on the days that you are fertile (ovulate).
- This period can be calculated by measuring your daily basal temperature or according to the menstruation dates.
- However, menstrual cycles are not always regular and are difficult to predict with a high degree of certainty.
- Periodic abstinence is therefore not a reliable birth control method.
