Ek wil graag weet hoe werk die "loop" en enige ander voorbehoedmiddels wat nie pille is nie. Ek sien baie mense praat ook van die Mirena (weet nie wat dit is nie). Ek wil glad nie meer enige vorm van 'n pil drink nie en wil net weet watter ander middels mens kan gebruik, hoe dit werk en hoe effektief dit is aangesien ek nie weer gou wil swanger raak nie.

The IUCD works by preventing implantation. The Mirena is a type of IUCD which has a hormone coating. Efficacy is about 98% with the IUCD and 99.5% with the Mirena. Other options are the injections, condoms and diaphragms.
