Misconception one: the adoption of routine gynecological examination on all things OK
Recently, a health agency survey: most women are ignorant of sexually transmitted diseases; just 1 / 4 a little to understand that chlamydia infection in women (one of the most common sexually transmitted disease), can lead to infertility; nearly half of the women feel that no matter what health problems, the annual routine physical examination can check out - unfortunately, the fact that far from it.

Doctor's advice is: Do not completely hopes on routine gynecological examination, if the suspect suffering from sexually transmitted diseases, even if the extremely low possibility, we must promptly notify the doctor, and to tell him exactly all of the symptoms, such as: odor secretions, urination pain, blisters and so forth.

Misconception 2: If a sexually transmitted disease, there must be feeling

This is a wrong understanding. Many sexually transmitted diseases (such as HPV, chlamydia, herpes, etc.), often quietly harm the human body, the patient does not have any unusual flu, compared to men, these diseases in the female body is more hidden, are also more difficult to detect.

Without timely treatment, sexually transmitted diseases without causing collateral damage to other organs of the female body. For example: HPV can cause cervical cancer; chlamydial infections lead to pelvic inflammatory disease leading to infertility. Do not take it lightly!

Misconception 3: Do not ejaculate will not be pregnant; menstrual intercourse will not be pregnant

Withdrawal of contraceptive methods is very dangerous. We love the "foreplay" in the secretion of lubricating fluid (prostatic fluid), it contains a part of the semen. Moreover, man's ability to control not to pin too much hope that in the climax before the extract in vitro, it is difficult to ensure foolproof. In fact, most men are Youlou refined phenomenon, and the number and activity of sperm enough to cause pregnancy. If you do not enter the vagina and ejaculate outside the genitals, nor is there is no possibility of pregnancy. Active sperm may enter the vagina and the uterus to continue to campaign. In addition, it is generally believed that sexual intercourse during menstruation without fear of pregnancy. But the fact is: There is sexual intercourse during menstruation and pregnancy precedent.

This is because the result of irregular ovulation. Most women menstruation after the start of the first 14 days or so of ovulation, but if the ovulation period in advance, combined with sperm vitality and exuberant, it is very likely to result in pregnancy. The average number of men in one ejaculation is about 300 million sperm, the sperm can survive in the female body about 7 days, if coupled women, in advance of ovulation, it very likely to become pregnant. So, even during menstruation, but also to take the necessary contraceptive measures.
Misconception 4: Continuing to take birth control pills will not only allow menstruation to stop, but also to reduce the risk of breast cancer

Just say right of the first phrase. We know that continuous pill can temporarily stop menstruation. And records from the relevant point of view, a small number of women suffering from menstrual breast cancer rate is low, but that does not like one plus one equals two is not enough. In fact, continued to take birth control pills do not reduce the risk of breast cancer because:

Whether the risk of breast cancer, depending on the level of estrogen secretion. Ancient society, women rarely get breast cancer, because that's when women started birth shortly after puberty, but a lifetime to go through several pregnancies. During pregnancy and lactation, ovary in a resting state, no longer secrete estrogen. For women, estrogen levels lower the risk of breast cancer will be lower. Therefore, from a purely physiological terms, the earlier the onset of childbearing women, the better. However, the child-bearing age in modern society that we pushed back considerably.

There is a misconception that continues to take birth control pills can reduce the risk of breast cancer. On the contrary, taking birth control pills can reduce the body's estrogen levels will also increase estrogen levels. So, from pure theory, should increase in breast cancer risk, but the reality could not be found in the survey figures the two what is the natural relationship between the long-term use of contraceptives for women need not worry too much. Moreover, the modern technology developed the birth control pills, estrogen levels have been lower than ever in many.

Misconception 5: use of contraceptives would not be infected with sexually transmitted diseases

Among the many contraceptives, only condoms have this dual function, both contraception, but also can prevent sexually transmitted diseases. Here are several kinds of contraceptives, sexually transmitted diseases, the ability of anti-analysis:

1. Oral contraceptives: the prevention of sexually transmitted infections powerless.

2. Diaphragm, intrauterine divide: some of the protection of the fallopian tubes, while the ability to protect the vagina is very inadequate.

3. Intrauterine IUD: This form of contraception for women actually increased the risk of suffering from sexually transmitted diseases, because they no longer need for additional protection to prevent pregnancy.

4. Sterilization surgery: to reduce the risk of suffering from pelvic inflammatory disease, but the risk of cervical and vaginal infection still exists.

Misconception 6: Oral contraceptives harmful

For women, smoking, oral contraceptives do have a certain degree of danger they may be a heart attack, stroke and other diseases of the victim, rather than smoking females do not have to worry about this problem.

U.S. medical institutions in the survey: contraceptive services for women suffering from ovarian cancer risk than non-medication of women in the low 40% ~ 60% chance of suffering from endometrial cancer is 50% below the chance of suffering from ovarian cysts and relatively cheap. Oral contraceptives also help the prevention of pelvic inflammatory disease, since medication on a regular basis makes the cervical mucus thickens, thus hinder the breeding of germs. In addition, oral contraceptives reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy, for women in menopause, osteoporosis, problems arise also help.

If you intend to use contraceptives, call your attention to:

1. If you have heart disease, stroke and cardiovascular disease, family history, or suffered from breast cancer, endometrial cancer or liver disease, it is best to use in other ways.

2. If you are the age of 35 years of age and smoking, also suggested that other methods of contraception.

3. Contraceptive drugs and antibiotics can not be the same clothes, because it will affect the potency, leading to contraceptive failure.

4. Contraceptives should be taken only after a complete cycle of withdrawal, or can cause menstrual disorders.
