The Relationship Between Contraceptive Use And Measuring Body Temperature?
One method of contraception touches women to measure their body temperature. Why is that done?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fertility is related to women's body temperature in one aspect. Women have a menstrual cycle, in which there is such a thing as a fertile period. The fertile period in women is a period where the possibility of women to have children will be higher than other periods. The fertile period usually occurs around ovulation (the release of eggs), or easy 12-16 days before the next menstrual period.
When this fertility occurs, there are some changes in a woman's body. Among them is the presence of more passionate feelings, both in living everyday life, in socializing, and in sexual relations. In addition there is mucus that comes out of the cervix with the characteristics of clear, smooth, elastic, like raw egg white. There is also mild pain in the stomach or back, and increased body temperature. To find out the increase in body temperature, this woman should measure her temperature when she woke up in the morning (in a state of no fever) for about 1-2 weeks beforehand. If her body temperature rises, then the woman is in a fertile period and it is easy to have children.
So regarding your question, the relationship between contraception and measuring the body temperature in question is likely to avoid this fertile period. If you are in the fertile period, you should not have sexual relations or use security if you really want to have sex. While for other contraceptive methods, such as an IUD, birth control pills, implants, or injections, do not require information about body temperature. So, hopefully answering your question.
