Medical Spas for Women

What a Consultation at a Spa Might Entail

If you are uncertain about using a temporary methods that involves a medical procedure, there are some Medical Spas that specialize in these things. Your doctor may refer you to one in order to help you make your final decision.

The establishment may have more in the way of information materials, and a consultant can spend more time going over your choices with you. Pros and cons can be discussed, including reliability of the different methods and possible side effects.

Implantable Devices

More than likely, when medical spas specialize in these methods, it has to do with implantable devices. This doesn’t mean that they will try to sell you on one of these methods, however. A reputable establishment will not encourage you to use an implantable device if it would be better for you to use another method.

That being said, if you decide on an implantable device because you think it would fit better with your lifestyle, you’ll have some different ones from which to choose. The device could be hormone-based and be implanted under the skin as a time-release method, or it could be an intrauterine device that may or may not involve hormones.


Medical Spas that specialize in implantable birth control methods will employ people who will have the necessary license to be able to perform the procedures. More than likely, they’ll be medical doctors or nurse practitioners. Getting an implantable device is always an outpatient procedure that rarely involves anesthetic.

Having the procedure done in this type of establishment often means that you’ll be much more comfortable than if it’s done in a doctor’s office setting. That being said, your general practitioner or gynecologist will most likely have consulted with the professional at the establishment on the final decision as to a method and the procedure in order to ensure that you’re getting the best care.

Medical spas can be good resources for women who are searching for the right birth control methods and want the best treatment and procedure options. The best way to find out about these types of spas is to talk to your physician first.

Herbal Solution For Birth Control

One woman doesn’t want to buy the moon theory described, though she will look into the herbal solution.┬áThe thing is, the moon theory only works after you’ve made it work, and there are things you can do to become synchronized with the moon phases (unless you have insurmountable menstrual glitches.) Looking at the moon a lot (sounds freaky, but it’s true) and regulating the light in your bedroom are just 2 things. If it could work for you, you’d simply have more confidence in your birth control because you’d know more assuredly when you are ovulating.

The book “Herbal for the Childbearing Year” deals a lot with herbal contraception. There are herbs that promote temporary sterility, like stonessed root, jack-in-the-pulpit root, and thistles (some of these are very powerful so you would have to first research exactly how to use them); and there are “implantation preventers” which make the uterus unsuitable for a fertilized egg to grow in.

Carrot seed, Rutin, and smartweed leaves all prevent implantation. It may be very worthwhile for you to look into these options, if having a baby is not possible for you right now. There are also ecbolics listed (herbs that cause abortions) but if you are against abortion, you want to stay away from them.

Hormonal Contraceptives For Women

Contrary to popular opinion, the after-effects of these products are often fully reversible after one has commenced and completed his or her treatment process. These techniques of contraception typically will refer to birth control methods that are acting mainly on the endocrine system. Popular examples of these would include the pill (which is the most common technique), patches, injections, intra-uterine systems, implants and finally the progestogen-only pill that is often referred to as the mini-pill.

Nowadays, nearly four million females within the United Kingdom itself are utilizing these contraceptive devices to help control fertility as well as prevent pregnancies from happening. They are also utilized to help treat particularly heavy periods of endometriosis as well as to help get rid of severe premenstrual symptoms. However, these products do not help to prevent one form obtaining STDs or sexually transmitted diseases.

The monthly cycles of a large majority of women are in fact regulated by two main hormones, namely oestrogen and progesterone. The former hormone tends to rise rapidly after her period which causes an unfertilized egg to develop in her ovaries through a process known as ovulation. The latter hormone comes into play by helping the lining of one’s womb to grow thicker in preparation for a fertilized egg.

The egg that is produced will that fall naturally down the woman’s fallopian tubes and her body will naturally absorb the egg away if it does not cause her to become pregnant. After this happens, the levels of both hormones within the woman’s body will start to drop and her womb lining will start to tear away gradually, and become disposed through a process known as a menstrual period.

The way in which these contraceptive products tend to operate is by containing many artificial or synthetic variants of the two hormones normally produced by a woman. When they are utilized correctly, they have the ability to interfere with one’s regular monthly cycle and this in turn, will help to cease the process of a normal pregnancy.

In general, these contraceptive function in three ways. Firstly, by preventing one’s ovaries from releasing the egg in the first place. Secondly, by thickening the cervix, which is the neck of the womb, thereby making it that much more difficult for the male sperm to enter. Finally, it may also operate by making the womb lining become too thin for a fertilized egg to be implanted into.

There are many more interesting and useful facts about these products that one should know about, and this article only offers a superficial coverage. By everything to know about Hormonal Contraceptives for women, one will be able to gain more insights on how these products are able to function.


Some women experience worse side effects, like headaches, nausea, depression, soreness, weight gain, strange bleeding… you name it! For this reason, pay close attention to your body after you start taking it. If you notice any changes in your body or your mood, talk to your gynecologist. You may be one of the few women who aren’t suited to taking pills.

Q – Does the pill protect you against sexually transmitted diseases like HIV/Aids?
A – Absolutely not! The pill offers no protection against anything at all except for motherhood, and it doesn’t guarantee 100% protection from that either! The only way to protect you completely from sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS, is complete abstinence. So, just don’t ever have sex again, and you’re safe.

Abstinence is not a choice? It is not for the most of the people. There are lots of ways to protect yourself from all the nasty diseases out there. The best place to start is to talk to your local gynecologist. They can recommend methods that will be the most effective in keeping you from catching anything.

Q – If you decide you want to have a baby, how long before the pill stops working?
A – Had enough of the childless life? If you want to start using sex for procreation and not just recreation, you can always stop taking the pill, and you’ll be fertile again.

Time Duration

No gynecologist can give you an exact date. It varies from woman to woman, but most women can ovulate again after 2 weeks. This doesn’t mean that after two weeks BAM!- You’re preggers! Hold on a little bit… it may take a longer time. Many people don’t realize it takes more than once without protection to put a bun in the oven. Have some patience!
