Female Non-Hormonal Contraception

Desire to control child-bearing was always inherent to the human kind. Even at the dawn of humanity people tried to prevent unintended pregnancies and plan the number and spacing of their children.

Lack of knowledge never kept them from making multiple attempts and efforts to avoid conceiving. Having had no idea about the origin of pregnancy, even not realizing the role of men in fertilization, they explored everything to prevent it – from performing ritual dances and wearing the uterus of a lioness to surgical procedures, which sometimes had lethal consequences. With the lapse of time they gained some knowledge, which allowed them to develop more effective ancient contraceptive methods and discover new ones.

Non-hormonal contraception belongs to the older ways of pregnancy control. Despite this fact, even in the 21 century there are many people, who do not possess any reliable knowledge on what non-hormonal contraception actually is, what methods and devices it includes, and how it works.
