1. Oral contraceptives (pills)
The tablets usually combine estrogen and progesterone, and their action depends on the health of a particular person. But usually they shorten the duration of critical days and reduce blood loss. That is a normal 5-7 day cycle can be reduced to 3-4 days. This is a good option for those who suffer from heavy painful menstruation.
Tablets, which only progestin do not reduce the profusion of critical days, but reduce their pain (and those that need to be taken without a break, generally eliminates the “holidays”). They can be taken during breastfeeding, and intolerance of estrogen, but it is important not to be late with taking more than a few hours.
The effect depends on its type. Non-hormonal IUD may provoke a profuse discharge in the first months and daub in between. But in General, on critical days, it is not affected. The hormone spiral with a progestin reduces the duration and profusion of menstruation, and maybe even “remove” them. Spiral put in an average of 5 years.
Is affected by about the same as the hormone spiral, but spotting happens more often (due to what he sometimes refuse). Enough for three years.
Its effect like pills, only need to change once a month.
6. A shot
This is one of the new methods of protection — a drug with a progestin administered in the buttock or shoulder every three months. In these terms after the first shot might be spotting and irregular periods, then menstruation becomes less abundant and may disappear altogether.
