Safe Contraception For Ex Lung Patients.?
Good evening, I am 27 years old and have 1 child, I would like to ask, because before marriage I had a history of lung disease, thoracic empyema, I have had thoracic surgery too. My question is which contraceptive is safe for me, because the obstetrician is helping I suggest that you don’t use drugs, because it can weaken or strengthen my medical history. I ask for a solution. Thank you for the answer. Good evening
Contraceptives, apart from natural contraceptives, are broadly divided into 2 types, namely hormonal contraception and non-hormonal contraception. The obstetrician advises you to use non-drug contraception means you are advised to use non-hormonal contraceptives.
Some non-hormonal contraceptive options that you can consider include:
Condoms: only used once, every time you have sex you have to change condoms, the failure rate is 15%, can protect against sexually transmitted diseases
Female condom: fitted to cover the vagina, failure rate 21%
Copper spiral IUD / KB: more recommended for women who have given birth, can last up to 10 years depending on the type of IUD, practical, insertion and removal must be done by a competent doctor or midwife, very effective with relatively lower failure rate
Spermicide: applied inside the vagina to kill sperm, failure rate 29%
Cervical cap: closes the entrance to the uterus, installation must be done by a doctor
Diaphragm: often used in conjunction with spermicide, failure rate 16%
I suggest that you discuss with your husband about choosing the contraceptive method that is most comfortable for you and your husband. If you are still in doubt, you should consult again with your obstetrician so that a more detailed explanation can be given and recommendations for the safest contraceptive method for you can be given.
