Contraceptive Foam - Popular Choice for Added Protection

June 30, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

Many couples take some time to arrive at the best form of birth control they should adopt. The reason is that they do not have sufficient knowledge about all the options available. A lot of people are shocked when they do get pregnant even though they have adopted some form of birth control or the other. This is because no birth control method is completely safe. Barrier methods are particularly unsafe because there is always the chance that they have been used in the wrong manner. Many couples therefore prefer to use more than one method of birth control simultaneously. Contraceptive foam is a great option for people who want a greater sense of security while making love.

Contraceptive foam is a kind of spermicidal foam that has to be inserted into the vagina before the sexual act. It serves the same kind of purpose as a diaphragm. When used by itself it cannot offer complete protection against pregnancy because there is always the chance that a stray sperm cell can avoid the foam. It is also possible that the woman has applied it wrongly. It is very unlikely that couples use contraceptive foam as their main method of birth control because it is very cumbersome to apply in addition to being risky.

The effect of the contraceptive foam does not last longer than 30 minutes. This makes it a very bad choice of birth control if the couple usually likes to have sex more than once in a particular session. It usually comes in a pressurized container along with a plastic applicator. The biggest problem that couples experience with this method of birth control is that it removes a lot of the spontaneity and romance of love making. Many women consider this to be a very messy method because the foam eventually leaks out of the vagina gradually.

Contraceptive foam is however the best method to use in case a couple requires added protection. A woman who has gone off the pill in order to try for a baby can use this method of birth control until her menstrual cycles have regularized. She can also use this foam when she first starts the contraceptive pill or is newly implanted with an intra-uterine device. These methods take some time to become completely effective and the foam can be used to ensure that there is no chance of pregnancy. The same applies to women who have just been fitted with a contraceptive implant or who have been administered a contraceptive injection.

Apart from helping to increase the effectiveness of other birth control methods, this foam can also be used as a method of reducing the risk of infection. It sometimes also doubles as a lubricant. Even though contraceptive foam has many drawbacks it still provides plenty of advantages that make it very popular with couples who require the added protection it offers. It is therefore very common for couples to keep a can or two of this foam in their bedside drawer.
