The only drawback is you need to wait at least 20 to 30 minutes after inserting the tablet for the spermicide to start working.

#5 Opt for Copper T

Injectable contraceptives are easy and free from any complication. These are called depot medroxyprogesterone acetate or DMPA injection that is given to a woman every three months to prevent pregnancy.

#7 Emergency contraceptive pills
These pills are usually called the morning-after pills, which help prevent an unwanted pregnancy after an accidental or spontaneous intercourse. However, keep in mind that you need to reach out for this pill within 48 or 72 hours of having unprotected sex.

#8 indulge in foreplay
Sometimes you can have a spontaneous desire without prior preparation, if you don’t want to let go of your feelings, it would be best to indulge in foreplay. Foreplay can also help increase intimacy without having sex and the fear of any early pregnancy sign.


#9 Tubal ligation

Like tubal litigation, vasectomy is one of the best pregnancy prevention. In this procedure, a small incision is made in the scrotum of the man and both the Vas Deferens, that is, ducts that carry sperms are blocked. This doesn’t interfere with a man’s sexual capabilities or erection. This process however doesn’t promise protection from sexually transmitted diseases.
