Contraception, also known as Birth and fertility control, is a method or device used to prevent pregnancy. A common myth amongst couples is that the use of contraceptives will decrease their fertility. It might take a couple of cycles for fertility to return but it doesn’t compromise on the fertility long term.
Type of Contraception
- Oral contraceptive pills – The resumption of ovulation happens within a few months of stopping the pills.
- Mirena– The fertility returns back in the very next cycle of removal of Mirena.
- Depo Provera– The medicine gets deposited in the muscle and takes about 9 months to a year to get completely metabolized and this for regularisation of periods and ovulation and thus fertility.
Except for tubectomy and vasectomy, none of The routinely used contraceptives compromises fertility.
