Sadly, there are so many unwanted pregnancies in the world today and majority of those ends up with abortion. Abortion itself carries certain risks for a woman, and unfortunately, there might be some problems regarding the future pregnancies. So, it would be very wise for both women and their partners to learn as much as possible about pregnancy.
What is the most important thing to learn about pregnancy? Well, if a couple or a woman does not want pregnancy to happen, contraception has to be used. There are simply no excuses allowed, because pregnancy might create physiological problems with serious consequences later in life. There are many contraceptive tools with almost 100% efficacy, and the cheapest and perhaps most effective tool is a condom. Those come in many shapes, colors, even with different tastes. Men say that they do not like the feeling they get from wearing condom and that during penetration sensations are subdued, but even though those statements might be true to a certain level, condom should still be used. And another thing, condom not only prevents pregnancy, but also all potentially dangerous sexually transmitted diseases – STDs. Since this is something that no other contraceptive can manage, it is another bonus point for condoms. Women should be firm when it comes to condoms, and persuade the partner to use them. Obviously, that might cause some problems sometimes, but, we should not play with our health. Men should also know that with condoms they protect themselves from STDs and from dealing with a major problem called pregnancy.
Signs and symptoms
When it comes to signs and symptoms of pregnancy, people tend to complicate things too much for no obvious reason. Questions regarding pregnancy, something like ''Is cramping a sign of pregnancy?'', morning sickness etc is not that important, because there is a simple test that will within a minute show if pregnancy exists. Yes, it is HCG test, which shows if there is a substance called HCG present in woman's organism. This substance is present only when the woman is pregnant. Test is performed easily; a few drops of urine in the morning is all that is needed, and nothing more. As for mentioned cramping, it might show during the pregnancy, but that is not such a good sign, and pregnant women should visit a doctor immediately. Pregnancy symptoms do include morning sickness, nausea, sometimes even vomiting, and when these signs occur, pregnancy test should beperformed.
