Since the introduction of female contraceptive devices they have gained a lot of popularity among women because they provide means of resisting pregnancy for a prolonged period of time. The best thing about female contraceptive devices is that they can be removed any time the woman wants. After removal the fertility rate of the woman goes back to normal within a few weeks time.
Some common female contraceptive devices available include: Vaginal Ring: This contraceptive device is basically a plastic ring which is inserted into the vagina of the woman and lasts for three weeks. After 3 weeks it is taken out and a new one is inserted.
Diaphragms: It is also known as cervical cap. This is because it is a rubber cup which fits exactly into the cervix of a woman and prevents entry of semen into the woman’s uterus.
Intrauterine Devices: This device is one of the most effective female contraceptive devices. It is inserted into the uterus of a woman and resists pregnancy for 5 to 10 years. It can sometimes cause permanent infertility in women so it should not be considered as a viable option if you are thinking about having a baby in future.
