The best way to avoid pregnancy naturally is to abstain from sex. But this may not be agreed by a lot of them for obvious reasons. Using contraceptives, condoms and pills also may not be possible due to culture and religious restraints. If a couple is not ready for parenthood, then it becomes increasingly important for them the woman’s reproduction cycle. That’s the best indicator of her ovulation period.
Firstly, a woman is advised to keep a record of her monthly cycle. Generally it’s after 28 days when her next period occurs. This cycle must be monitored for 4 to 6 months. This will give her an idea of her own menstrual cycle. 28 days is a generalized gap. It may not be applicable to every woman. Hence the maximum fertility time can be known and a pregnancy can be avoided. The peak fertility period is before the ovulation when the woman is most likely to get pregnant in case of unprotected sex.
In most cases it so happens that women are unaware of the fact the Moon affects their fertility level. During the full moons the fertility may reach its peak even when it’s not her time of ovulation. This occurrence is known as natal lunar fertile phase. This is vital information for avoiding unwanted pregnancies.
Another method of avoiding pregnancy is to keep a check on the cervical mucus. As the period ends the vagina feels dry. But as gradually the ovulation nears the vagina releases a white sticky and slippery fluid kind of thing known as mucous. This means that she is at the peak of her fertility and can be pregnant if there’s an intercourse. It’s best to abstain from sex during this period or she might use a condom which does not give 100% protection.
