The Use Of Contraceptives (Part 6) – Knowing The Fertile Days
The Use Of Contraceptives (Part 6) – Knowing The Fertile Days: Good day dearest friends. How was your weekend? I would like to begin today’s class by saying this: you all have been awesome. Your active participation has been so encouraging. Those comments, likes, and shares help me to know that I am not just talking to myself.
That said, let’s get to the business of the day. Its Monday, time is money!
We continue from where we stopped last class. If you missed any class, I am sure you are aware that my wall has the answer to all your “misses” or you can just use the hash-tag #EverydayInNovember and in no time, we will be on the same page. Better still, you can collect the notes of our two class reps Mamah A. O. Thaddeus and Cheerful, that is, if they even keep notes.
Last week we discovered that a woman can only get pregnant within the 24 hours of her egg release. Not later, not before.
Now, even though this is true, does it mean that for conception to happen, intercourse must necessarily take place only within the 24 hours in which the egg that is released could survive? Is it possible that the sperm that was released into the vaginal during the intercourse that happened three to four days ago could still fertilize the egg that will be released today, if today happens to be the woman’s ovulation day? When are the fertile days of a woman and how do we know the day the egg is released (ovulation day)? In short, how long can sperm survive in the vaginal?
As you may have noticed, the questions above are very important.
The answers given to those questions can go a long way in helping couples who have been looking for the fruit of the womb to know the right time to meet each other (provided both of them are medically alright) and conception could happen.
Again, answering those questions will also help those couples wishing not to be pregnant at a particular time to know the right time they should not meet each other sexually.
Then, very importantly, if we are very clear and able to answer the above questions very well to ourselves, then we may discover that there may be no need wasting resources or taking the risk of using contraceptives. And should we ever use contraceptives, it will no longer be out of ignorance of its risk, but that we actually love to suffer the dangers inherent in them.
To get a perfect answer to those questions will surely take not just time, but careful observation of your body system. I hope to provide you with everything you need to know, and leave you to observe those things within yourself for more than two cycles at least.
If you noticed, I do not isolate the man or woman. This is because, in this issue, it is not just about the woman or the man. It is about the two of them.
It is mostly in contraceptives that you will get to see the burden solely on one person, and often, it is the woman who bears all the burnt. She takes the pills alone; she suffers the consequences alone. The man is often not even aware of what she goes through. All the man knows is, I have provided the money for the pills, I can now have ‘free sex’ without the fear of conception.
Take this to anywhere, if this same man still tells you he loves you, then you will need to ask him to define what he means by love.
I am sure you already know that tomorrow and indeed this week’s class is a MUST.
I can’t wait too.
God bless you!
