If you don't want to avoid becoming pregnant, you can take a contraceptive in addition to using a condom.
Violett's doctors and health professionals can give you more information about the different birth control methods and you decide which of these suits you best.
You can contact us if you want:
- Information about contraceptives.
- A prescription for contraceptives.
- An IUD (intra-uterine device) inserted.
- A contraceptive injection.
- Get the emergency (morning-after) pill.
Sterilization can be a permanent solution for women who no longer want children.
- How does it work?
- The fallopian tubes are blocked, eggs can no longer enter the uterus and sperm can no longer reach the eggs.
- A woman is immediately infertile after sterilization.
- Sterilisation is done through surgery. Usually, you can go home the same or the next day. You may suffer some abdominal pain and feel bloated for a few days. This is harmless. Take it easy the first 3 days after the operation. The stitches are removed after 10 days.
- A man can also be sterilised (vasectomy) and is much easier than the female procedure!
- Sterilisation carries no health risks. Your hormones keep functioning normally and there's no impact on your menstrual cycle or libido.
- It is important that you discuss this method with your doctor because it is a permanent form of birth control.
- Few doctors will recommend this method to young people.
