Types of family planning
An unintended pregnancy can cause life-altering circumstances, putting stress on relationships. The situation can be avoided by practicing safe sex: choosing short-acting, long-acting and/or barrier method contraception. Remember, that male and female condoms protect against the transmission of STIs. If you have become pregnant due to a harrowing circumstance such as rape, there are counsellors available who can help you deal with the emotional trauma as well as discuss the options you have for the unintended pregnancy.
