When the women get pregnant, why do they need birth control?

About

When it comes to choosing the right contraception, the answer to that question depends entirely on the women and their needs.

“When you’re trying to have a baby, you’re in a very limited space,” said Lisa Hsieh, a senior research associate at the Population Council’s Health Policy Program.

“It’s a very tight time frame for pregnancy.

So if you’re thinking about birth control for women, there are a lot of factors to consider, but it’s not like the women are just going to just take what they need and just use it.

They’re going to need to have it on longer, longer durations.”

In fact, it can be difficult to know what you need to take on an emergency pregnancy test when you’re pregnant.

“Pregnancy testing can be a bit of a challenge for people, especially when you’ve got an individual with a preexisting condition who might not be ready for a pregnancy test,” Hsieb said.

So how do you know if you need an emergency test?

“The most common answer I get from women is that they don’t have the resources,” Hsiem said.

“So what they really need is a test with the following features: a time of day when they can do the test without interruption, a location where they can have it done and they can see what it is, and a time interval of a few minutes, but not for multiple hours.”

That can mean you’ll need to visit the nearest hospital emergency room and wait at least an hour before you can go back to your own home.

“And so, there’s definitely a time limit,” Hieh said.

The more options you have, the more likely you are to be able to get the test done.

“The way I think about it, the women in my cohort of women who are at risk for pregnancy are the ones who have the most options and they’re the ones with the highest barriers to getting tested,” Hsem said.

Hsied said women need to think about how long they want to wait before they can take an emergency birth control test, and whether or not they’re ready for it.

“I think there’s a lot more that can be said about that,” she said.

But the longer you wait, the less likely you’re to be getting an accurate result.

Hsieman said the best way to get a good test result is to be aware of your options.

“Make sure you’re not using any other methods that might not have the same effectiveness,” he said.

For example, he said, women should also be aware that a test may not be needed if they are currently taking any other birth control methods.

“For example, it’s possible that your period is coming on too soon,” he explained.

“You might be able get a test to take after that, but if you haven’t taken another method that’s been shown to be effective, it may not work.

And so that can make things a little bit more complicated.”
