Speaking of health, there are always a variety of myths around that seem to be widely believed by many people. Especially various problems related to the health of the reproductive organs. Lack of sexual education is one of the causes. In addition, many young people are too obedient to what is said by their parents. Even though your parents are not necessarily true. In fact, the things they say often do not have a theoretical basis and are mere myths.
Practice like this should be removed from society if our society does not want to be misled by myths about the health of reproductive organs, especially regarding the health of women’s reproductive organs. Women’s health problems are often associated with various myths. So, when a woman experiences health problems, many choose to remain silent for fear that something bad will happen to her. This fear is certainly not necessary.
It would be better to consult with a doctor so that problems that occur can get a solution directly from the experts. In this article, we will discuss the myths that often circulate in society about women’s health problems, especially reproductive health.
Sex during Menstruation
There are many people who say that a woman will not be able to get pregnant if she is having sex during menstruation. Well, this turns out to be wrong. Many women assume that unprotected sexual intercourse during menstruation or the beginning or end of menstruation will not cause pregnancy.
There are still many women, in fact, who can get pregnant at the time of menstruation. Why is that? This is because sperm can live for up to 5 days in a woman’s body and if menstrual periods are too short (less than 28 days). The fall of the fertile period can be during our menstrual periods.
Another myth is that a woman who is still in the breastfeeding period will not be able to get pregnant. This is also not true. It is true that fertility and menstruation rarely occur when you are in a breastfeeding period. But one day your menstrual cycle will return and you will experience a fertile period without realizing it. So, pregnancy can still occur even if you are breastfeeding. For your information, many doctors recommend delaying pregnancy for up to 1 year after giving birth.
Then, there is a myth that says that a woman who has many women’s health problems also will not be able to get pregnant. This is very misleading and it can reduce women’s self-confidence. Even though a doctor says you cannot be pregnant, you can STILL get pregnant. Continue to use safeguards such as condoms during sexual intercourse if you do avoid pregnancy or do not use it if you are expecting a pregnancy with your partner.
Last but no least, a woman can still get pregnant if her partner always ejaculates outside the vagina. The myth always tells you otherwise. This is one of the biggest mistakes women believe because a woman can still get pregnant even if her partner ejaculates outside. Why is that? Because before ejaculation appears, a small amount of liquid lubricant will come out and the fluid contains sperm. Any penetration of the vagina with the penis, in fact, can directly cause pregnancy even though the penis is pulled out before ejaculation.
