What is Emergency Contraception?
Emergency contraceptives are methods of preventing pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. They do not protect against sexually transmitted infections. Emergency contraception can be used when a condom breaks, after a sexual assault, or any time unprotected sexual intercourse occurs. Do not use emergency contraceptives as your only protection against pregnancy if you are sexually active or planning to be, because they are not as effective as any ongoing contraceptive method. Emergency contraceptives include:

Guide to Contraception
This 'Virtual Guide to Contraception' will help you to decide on the method of contraception most suited to you. It shows all the available methods , explains how they work, how reliable they are and the main advantages and disadvantages. There are a lot myths around about contraception and how a woman can get pregnant. These are the facts. A woman can still get pregnant:
  • If a man pulls out of her vagina before he 'comes'. If she has sex when she has a period. If she is breastfeeding. If it is the first time she has sex. If she does not have an orgasm. If she douches (squirts water or other liquid into the vagina). This can be harmful to women. In whatever position the couple has sex.
Which contraceptive method should I use?
There are many different contraceptive methods available , and different methods suit different people at different times of their lives. A GP or Family Planning Clinic will help you to choose the one that is best for you and your partner. Choosing a method you like and feel comfortable with means you will be able to relax and enjoy sex more, without the worry of an unplanned pregnancy. The IFPA's Virtual Guide to Contraception will give you an idea of all the methods available.

International Litigation At the United Nations Africa ... join mailing list Contraception A woman's ability to plan her reproductive life and her right be free from interference in reproductive decision-making are two fundamental aspects of reproductive self-determination. International instruments have defined the right to plan one's family as the right to determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of one's children and to possess the information, education, and means necessary to do so. This right has been affirmed in international consensus documents adopted at UN conferences in recent decades, including the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women (Beijing Conference). In addition, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women explicitly urges states to ensure the right to family planning, information, counseling, and services. The right to plan one's family gives rise to a governmental duty to ensure that women and men have equal access to a full range of contraceptive choices and reproductive health services and that they have accurate information about sexual and reproductive health. Nearly 230 million women worldwide - 1 in 6 women of reproductive age - lack information on and access to a full range of contraceptive methods. More than one-third of all pregnancies - 80 million each year - are unwanted or mistimed. A full range of contraceptive methods includes: male and female condoms, vaginal barrier methods, oral contraceptives, implants, injectables, intrauterine devices, male and female sterilization, and emergency contraception (EC). Governments that place obstacles in the way of women's access to contraceptive choices - by strictly regulating or prohibiting contraceptive methods and information, or by requiring a husband's consent for the use of contraception - violate the right to family planning. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) describes EC as a contraceptive method used by women in the first few days following unprotected intercourse to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Some conservative political and religious organizations seek to limit women's reproductive choices by inaccurately characterizing EC as abortion when, in fact, the WHO considers it a safe contraceptive.

The Role of Contraception in Reducing Abortion
Following the 1994 election, which gave social conservatives a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years, emboldened leaders of the antiabortion movement began to campaign openly against government-subsidized family planning programs. In a preview of the legislative assaults to come against both the international and domestic programs, House Pro-Life Caucus Chairman Christopher Smith (R-NJ) declared in January 1995 that he opposed U.S.-supported family planning efforts abroad because they lead to "abortion activism" and, by implication, result in more rather than fewer The "evidence" for his claim derives in part from a misunderstanding of the data. Following the introduction of family planning programs, contraceptive use and abortion rates in some countries have initially risen simultaneously; in other countries - including the United States - contraceptive use is nearly universal, but abortion rates have only recently begun to decline significantly. These data have been used to legitimate the assertion that the availability of contraception itself causes more abortions. In the two and a half years since Smith's comment, the proponents of this view have sowed sufficient doubt among enough policymakers about the role of family planning programs domestically and internationally to disrupt a decades-long political consensus. Previously, all but a very small minority considered self-evident the view that better access to and more effective use of contraceptives are necessary to reduce the incidence of abortion.

Center Sues FDA for Denying Women Over-the-Counter Access to Emergency Contraception
FDA Internal Memo Suggests Agency Did Not Follow Regulations On January 21, 2005, the Center for Reproductive Rights filed suit against the Acting Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration in federal court for failing to approve the emergency contraceptive product Plan B for over-the-counter status. Emergency contraception (EC), sometimes known as "the morning after pill," reduces the risk of pregnancy by approximately 89 percent when it is taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse, according to a study published in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Governments Worldwide Put Emergency Contraception into Women’s Hands: A Global Review of Laws and Policies (PDF)
This briefing paper available in PDF from the Center examines government initiatives worldwide aimed at making EC more accessible. These initiatives begin with the recognition that EC is a means of preventing pregnancy, not terminating pregnancy. Steps to improve access to EC include registering EC products, making EC available over the counter, and ensuring that EC is available to women at greatest risk of unwanted pregnancy, including rape survivors and adolescents.

Do they work? Lets just say that if you absolutely do not want to get pregnant under any circumstances, then don't use herbs as your sole form of contraception. That said, there does seem to be some evidence that some of them do work. This section of my website discusses some of these herbs in greater details. I can't vouch for their effectiveness, but I have used some of these herbs, and also know others who have used them. On the following pages, you'll find the information and experiences I have collected about each of them. The herbs listed here are a fraction of the herbs available around the world that have been used historically for contraception.

A look a contraception in history.
by William Petrick Long before condoms came in rainbow colors and exotic skins, legendary lover Casanova was sewing together strips of fine linen. Centuries before nonoxynol 9, young women in Constantinople shook the gritty sand from sea sponges and dipped them in lemon juice before insertion. Contraception has a long and inventive history. Now there is a museum dedicated to one of humankind's most persistent quests. Located just outside Toronto, Canada, The History of Contraception Museum is billed as one of a kind. With over 600 different I.U.D.'s, sponges, condoms and other contraceptive devices, the museum is certainly in a class by itself. "We started collecting back in the 1960's," explains Walter Masanic, Director of Public Affairs for Ortho-McNeil, Inc., the company that is responsible for the museum. "People weren't collecting then so we had items taken from a few doctors' offices. But then word spread and we started getting things from all over the world, Asia, Europe, South America, it's an international museum now."

15. Birth Control & Contraception For Teenagers
contraception and birth control methods suitable for teens are described including condoms, contraceptive pills, and injectable methods.
What is birth control?
Birth control means things you can do to ensure that pregnancy only happens if and when you want it to. Birth control can mean abstinence. Abstinence is deciding not to do something, and abstaining from having sexual intercourse will ensure that pregnancy does not occur. Birth control can also mean using a method of contraception to ensure that pregnancy does not occur when you do have sexual intercourse.
What causes a girl to become pregnant?
If a girl gets semen (the fluid released by a man's penis when he ejaculates or 'comes') inside or even just around her vagina, this can make her pregnant. This is because semen contains sperm. Pre-cum (the white liquid that leaks out of a man's erect penis before he ejaculates) can also contain sperm and therefore can also cause pregnancy. The most usual way semen and pre-cum get in or around the vagina is during sexual intercourse: when a boy's hard penis goes inside a girl's vagina. (There is more information on another page about having sexual intercourse for the first time Usually, sometime between the ages of 11 and 15, a girl begins to have periods. This shows that the ovaries have begun to produce eggs. An egg is released every month. If it does not meet up with the sperm that comes out of the boy's penis during intercourse, it dies. Then it leaves the body in the blood which comes out through the vagina during a girl's period every month.
