Advantages and disadvantages of natural contraception

Natural contraception is based on monitoring a woman's menstrual cycle to know when ovulation will occur, coinciding with the days of greatest fertility. Some women analyze their cervical mucus or measure their basal temperature. On the other hand, other women choose to perform what is commonly known as backward intercourse or coitus interruptus.

This natural way of preventing pregnancy has certain advantages such as no side effects, no financial cost and can be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, natural contraception is not very safe, as its effectiveness is 75%. In addition, this method of contraception does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
