Nurses Advice on Birth Control Measures to Choose

Unread post by Kunle Emmanuel » Fri Jun 13, 2014 11:54 am

IUD, pills, contraceptive ring, condoms, transdermal patch, and injection method – which would you prefer?

With the rising number of abortions, sexually transmitted disease and unwanted pregnancies, many methods have been introduced for birth controls. Deciding when to start using birth control and choosing the method that will work for you is an important decision.

Nurses work closely with patients than any other health care providers. And because of this, nurses play a vital role in educating, assisting and counselling about birth control measures and which of them might work best according to preferences and health concerns.

There are different types of birth control that is grouped according to how they work like Natural Family Planning, Hormonal Methods, Implantable Devices, and Permanent Birth Control Methods. These have their advantages and disadvantages. It is essential that nurses explain well the options and its pros and cons for couples to understand the choices. They must also be educated about the importance of consistent and its effective use. It is also important in order to correct misconceptions that some have believe for some time. Because if these misconceptions is not corrected it might result to unwanted pregnancies that they are preventing to happen.

Nurses must remind their patients that there is no perfect birth control, but by using the chosen method correctly and without fail in coordination with their health concerns, the odds of getting pregnant is low.

Many things depends on choosing the right method. Nurses must always state when educating and counselling patients seeking help in choosing the right birth control measure that every individual is unique and what may work well on a couple might not be effective to another.
