Frequently Asked Questions
What are alternative contraceptives?
Alternative contraceptives are contraceptive products that are not taken orally like combined or mini pills. These alternatives come in the form of vaginal rings and patches, both containing synthetic versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progestogen which prevent unwanted pregnancy.
The hormones work in a few different ways to prevent pregnancy. The first is by releasing the egg from the ovaries. The second is thickening the fluid in the cervix, making it more difficult for the sperm to penetrate the womb. Finally, they prevent the womb lining from thickening enough to grow an egg. This three-pronged approach makes alternative contraceptives highly effective, with up to 99% success in preventing unwanted pregnancies.
How should I use Alternative Contraceptives?
If you are using the vaginal ring alternative contraceptive, pinch it together with your thumb and finger and insert into the vagina in a comfortable way. You shouldn’t feel it day by day and it cannot get lost or dislodged. Remove the product after 21 days by hooking a finger under the rim of the ring and gently pulling it out. After that, take a break for 7 days and then insert a new one.
If you are using an alternative contraceptive patch, apply the adhesive side of the plaster square to dry skin of the buttocks, back, upper arm or lower abdomen. The patch will then slowly release the hormones which your body will absorb through the skin. Wear the patch for a week and then replace it with a new one, applied to a different part of the skin. Continue for 3 consecutive weeks then take a one-week break before starting the cycle again.
The benefits of Alternative Contraceptives
Some women find alternative contraceptives to be more convenient than traditional oral contraceptives as they do not have to remember to take them daily. Depending on which alternative contraceptive you choose, you won’t have to worry about it for a few weeks, unlike contraceptive pills you have to remember to take daily at the same time. Women who don’t like taking pills or have trouble remembering to take them will benefit from using patches and rings instead.
Alternative contraceptives are equally effective in preventing pregnancy as oral contraceptives as long as they are used properly. You can find a wide range of alternative contraceptives at True Medical.
