Barrier methods of contraception are very popular today, but manufacturers, unfortunately, are not all conscientious. It also happens that condoms hastily bought at the checkout in a supermarket break at a fatal moment. What to do in such an emergency? By the way: buy condoms at the pharmacy, not at the box office or in stalls. There is no guarantee of the quality of the latter, and the price does not differ. So do not be lazy, walk an extra few meters – you will be healthier!
So, if you still come across low-quality condoms, and the unexpected happened, first remember what day of the menstrual cycle it is today. It is better to keep a menstrual calendar and track ovulation, then it will be much easier for you to understand whether to worry or not. But if the condom still broke at a dangerous moment and it’s too late to talk about what could have been prevented, remove the sperm from the vagina as soon as possible and douche. Douching should be done with a solution with the addition of vinegar or lemon juice, then the activity of spermatozoa will significantly decrease and the process of their death will accelerate. Do not forget to taste the solution before douching to prevent burning the vaginal mucosa. Then insert Concepttrol, Pharmatex, Delfin or Coromex into the vagina. This method does not guarantee a 100% result, so stock up on postinor or hormonal contraceptives. However, it should be remembered that such emergency contraceptives are not suitable for permanent use – they greatly harm the female microflora.
In the event that sexual contact occurred with a person whose sexual health is in question, there is a possibility of contracting an STI. It can be genital herpes, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, ureaplasmosis, syphilis, gonorrhea and other dangerous diseases. To prevent this, it is necessary to do prophylaxis in the dermatovenerological dispensary with a solution of silver nitrate, potassium permanganate gibitan, mercury salts or cidipol within the first two hours after intimacy.
If you are not sure about your sexual partner, it is necessary to carry out prophylaxis in advance. Well, the best solution to the issue would be an elementary rejection of intimacy with this person.
