The females who have completed their family and do not want to have more children are looking for contraceptives. Ideally the male partner must use a condom in order to prevent pregnancy. The condom not only acts as a contraceptive but also has no side effects and prevents sexually transmitted diseases. However many men are averse to using a condom during sexual intercourse and expect the female to take precautions. If you do not want pregnancy for 2-3 years then the best option for the female is to go for Intrauterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD). In India this is popularly known as Copper-T. If you have completed the family then the permanent solution would be contraception through Tubal Ligation.
There are both temporary and permanent contraceptive solution that are available at Bahra hospital, Mohali. Dr Balvin Kaur Ghai counsels the couple before suggesting them the best possible contraceptive solution.
Birth Control Pills – Birth control pills are very old and most commonly used contraceptive methods in India. These pills are hormonal pills and control the reproductive cycle in females. These can only be used by women. Hormonal methods cause changes in the woman’s reproductive cycle and include birth control pills, birth control patches, emergency contraception pill, Implants and so on.
Intra Uterine Contraceptive Device (IUCD)
In this method an object called an intrauterine device or IUD is put in the woman’s uterus. There are two types of IUD: the copper IUD or an IUD with hormones implanted on it. The hormonal IUD has better protection against pregnancy but costs more. You need not do anything once it is inserted. Also, it is effective for up to 10 years. The copper IUD is again a traditional product. The most common of them is copper-T.
Mirena is a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) that can provide long-term birth control (contraception). The device is a T-shaped plastic frame that’s inserted into the uterus, where it releases a type of the hormone progestin. Mirena releases the hormone that thickens mucus in the cervix to stop sperm from reaching or fertilizing an egg as well as thins the lining of uterus.
Dr Balvin Kaur Ghai is one of the best and extensively trained Gynaecologist in Punjab, India for contraceptive and family planning solutions at Bahra Hospital, Mohali. As mentioned there are temporary and permanent contraceptive solutions available. The cost also depends upon the type of contraception method opted for. Permanent solution like tubectomy or female sterlization needs small surgical approach and hence would cost more than the temporary solutions like copper t or Mirena Ring.
