Semen Triggers Ovulation, New Study Suggests

Filed under: birth control options,conceiving,contraception — Tags: , — nirochabrun @ 3:06 am

The rhythm method has been a way of preventing pregnancy for some time however recent research has discovered it is even less reliable. New research conducted by Gregg Adams and his colleagues confirms that the fluid in semen is not just a vehicle for sperm to travel in; rather, it is also a substance which triggers ovulation in female mammals. Therefore there is a risk that women can become pregnant during the times when they are not ovulating simply because the liquid in semen itself is causing the female body to ovulate.

What is in the fluid that causes ovulation you may ask? It is a protein fundamental to the survival and development of sensory neurons, known as NGF or neural growth factor. Once injected, NGF in the male sperm contacts the brain by traveling through the female bloodstream. When in contact, the brain will initiate the hypothalamus and pituitary glands to release hormones that kick start ovulation.

This is not news for a group of Chinese researchers who had already noticed that there was an ovulation-inducing factor (OIF) found in semen back in 1985. They were simply ignored when they first introduced this hypothesis as it contradicted the commonly held views about the reproductive system at that time. The new study now supports their hypothesis and further research can lead to new fertility treatments for couples that are having difficulty conceiving.

Those avoiding pregnancy should make sure they are using contraceptives. This study provides evidence that NGF, or OIF in semen can activate ovulation in women even when they are not supposed to be ovulating. In other words, you can get pregnant, even when you are not ovulating. As a result, we cannot stress enough how important contraceptive use is for women who do not want to become pregnant. There are many contraception options available that are safe and effective. Speak to your doctor to find out which option is best for you.

Birth Control Gel in testing stages

Birth Control comes in many forms including implant, injection, patch, ring, IUD, pills, and soon gel! The birth control gel is still in its early testing stages, but the results are looking optimal. The gel can be rubbed onto the arms, legs, shoulders or abdomen much like a moisturizer. Applying 3 milligrams of the gel daily will deliver the right dosage of progesterone and estrogen, much like the birth control patch, through the skin to stop the ovaries from releasing an egg every month.

The main ingredient to this gel is Nestorone, a newly developed type of synthetic progesterone very similar to the natural hormone that contains a chemically identical type of estrogen that is produced in a woman’s body.  This birth control gel will not cause users to experience common side effects such as nausea and weight gain. Women who are breastfeeding are also able to use the birth control gel because the hormones in the gel will not interfere with the milk supply.

The New York Population Council research center’s director of clinical development of reproductive health, Dr. Ruth Merkatz is the researcher behind the latest study on this birth control gel. Over a seven month period, there were 18 women in the age range from 20 to 40 who had used the birth control gel. So far, none had become  pregnant from using the gel.  Dr. Ruth Merkatz finds that the birth control gel can improve the choice of methods and options of birth control for women.

Women More Likely to Use Birth Control if Partner Supports It

The “birth control” question can be confusing for partners, and birth control options are predominantly aimed towards women, putting the decision in their hands, however a new study suggests that women are twice as likely to use birth control if their partners are very much in favor of it.

The study was done in Los Angeles and Oklahoma City; lead by Marie Harvey – a professor of public health at Oregon state University.  Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the study looked at 435 couples that were between the ages of 18 and 25.  The women in the couples were not pregnant and were not trying to become pregnant.

The men and women in the study said they both participated in deciding whether or not to use birth control.  However, agreement between partners on whether they had discussed birth control was low. Harvey claims that this contradiction is typical in male and female relationships.  To a woman, a conversation about birth control might include weighing in all birth control options and having a long detailed conversation.  To a man, it could be as easy as asking a woman if she is on birth control.

Both partners were interviewed on contraception use and pregnancy motivation. It was found that even among women not trying to get pregnant, less than 60% said avoiding pregnancy was extremely important.  Regardless of what the women had said about avoiding pregnancy, a large number of surveyed women were engaging in unprotected sex.  This reflects mainly on the education that health care providers are giving to young women.  “Providers need to probe more to understand women’s’ motivations and help them clarify their desires about whether or not to use contraception” Harvey said.

“We are trying to better understand the influence of partners…Public health research in the past has largely focused on the woman alone, but we know that a woman’s partner can be very influential.  Yet, research rarely addresses the influence of sexual partners on protective behaviors.”

The Risks of Combination Birth Control Pills

There’s a lot of negativity associated with combination pills like Yaz and Yasmin where there really shouldn’t be. There are lawsuits all over TV and the internet that suggest combination birth control pills causes pancreatic cancer or organ failure. In reality, these lawsuits should not exist.

It is a patient’s job to ask questions and assess risks with their doctors before taking any medications. In addition, a new article from The Medical Letter – Volume 52, Issue 1334, 2010, reveals that although combination oral contraceptives increase the risk of developing venous thromboembolism (VTE), the risk is low. In fact, the risk of developing VTE while taking oral contraceptives is no different than the risk you have when you are pregnant. Pregnant women have a higher risk of developing VTE than women taking combination pills.

It is even debatable that the risk of developing VTE is worth the benefits that the pill provides. In addition to preventing pregnancy combination birth control pills can lower your risk of developing endometrial cancer, and reduce dysfunctional uterine bleeding, reduce acne, control menstrual periods, and reduce the symptoms of PMS. It is estimated that over 40,000 women in the United States will develop endometrial cancer this year, compared to the strongly age dependent VTE that will occur in 8-10 women in 10,000. All methods of birth control have their own set of risks and benefits. If you are concerned about your risks while taking birth control, don’t be hesitant to ask your doctor. You can’t rely on what you see on TV or hear from others when it comes to choosing the right form of contraceptive for you.

Who Should Use IUDs?

IUDs (Intra-Uterine Devices) are becoming increasingly popular in North America. The IUD is a low-maintenance, effective form of birth control. Once a device is in place, it can work for 5-12 years (depending on the device) and you can have it taken out sooner if you need to have a child or change methods. IUDs protect you from pregnancy each time you are sexually active and you don’t feel it or notice it’s there.
The IUD is the best option for women who have a low risk of acquiring STIs (sexually transmitted infections), need to avoid estrogen-based products and want a reversible type of birth control. Married women or women in a long-term relationship over the age of 20 are the best candidates. Although young adults can use IUDs effectively, they are more likely than adults to have multiple partners and are therefore at an increased risk of contracting an STI. The IUD isn’t a good first choice for a newly sexually active teen because she cannot predict her partners future sexual behavior. In addition, problems including expulsion, removal for bleeding and pain, and pregnancies are more common in teens than older women using the IUD. Talk to your doctor about your birth control options to find out what is best for you.

Birth Control Ring: Introduced in India

India’s birth control plan is beginning to pick up. With a population of 684 million and counting, all methods of birth control are happily accepted. It New Delhi on November 18th, a US based pharmaceutical company in Oregon launched a birth control ring that apparently has no side effects.

Nuvaring is popular form of birth control in North America and Europe that has recently been introduced in India as an easy method of birth control. Nuvaring is a transparent flexible ring that contains hormones which enter the blood stream daily inhibiting ovulation. The ring is a simple and effective reversible birth control procedure because unlike the pill where you take one everyday, it only requires that you insert the ring once a week for three weeks of the month.

Managing director of Organon K.G Ananthakrishnan says that only 20% of women use contraceptives in India. He suggests that the ring is a good idea because it does not have any side effects and will not obstruct other daily activities.

North American Women are Afraid of IUD’s

The Intrauterine Device (IUD) is the world most popular form of reversible birth control. There are more than 160 million women in the world who use this device – more than two thirds of which live in China.

The IUD is a reversible option to birth control, it does not require daily consumption (birth control pills), it is a safe effective alternative to birth control pills (based on its doses of hormones), and a single device inserted into the uterine can stay active for up to 10 years. The simplicity and the benefits of this device are overwhelming!

So why it is that less than 4% of all North American women use this birth control method?

Perhaps it was the Dalkon Shield scare in the 1970’s that has forever tainted the reputation of IUDs. “Dalkon Shield” was an IUD that was ultimately pulled out of the Canadian market due to it’s negative effects on consumers. There were many cases of infections, infertility, miscarriages, and death amongst its users.
Since then safe alternative IUD models have been develop and have prospered in popularity throughout the world. In China, more than 90 million women are rushing to get their hands on IUD contraceptives.

The United Nations department of economic and social affairs reported that only 2.9% of Canadian women and 1.8% of American women use IUD’s for contraception. Compared to the 19.6% in Asia, and 13.9% in the Caribbean, North American use of the IUD is surprisingly scarce.

An IUD is inserted and removed by a doctor quickly and easily, and can last up to 10 years depending on the model and desire for use. IUD’s prevent implantation of an egg by changing the lining of the uterus so that an egg cannot properly attach. IUD’s have other benefits as the also act as treatment to reduce acne and facial hair. It is expected that the popularity of the device will increase in North America as women grow more comfortable with the method and its benefits. The Dalkon Shield scare is now in the past.

Some popular brands of IUD are Mirena and ParaGard
