Some people just do not like the responsibility and think it is better to just have pets while others are concerned about the resources, the choice is not that easy. In any case, birth control has become exceedingly popular. Other than abstinence, people use all kinds of birth control methods, including male and female condoms, morning-after pills and other contraceptives. These methods are quite popular but have their pros and cons too. Nevertheless, nature has provided us with all kinds of herbs which can be used for a variety of purposes.

Neem is a very strong contraceptive given that a minute amount of the herb, in form of oil, when injected to the uterine horns, can make a woman infertile for a year, without messing with the ovaries, menstrual or hormonal cycle. Neem not only works as a contraceptive for women but men can also use it.

For a man, neem can adversely affect the motility of the sperm cells, which makes them unable to reach the female egg and fertilize it. It takes neem oil less than 30 seconds to kill a sperm cell within a vagina. It can also cause infertility in men. It may be used within a capsule, on a daily basis, to use as a birth control pill. The good news is that your sperm productions or libido do not get affected by the intake of neem, in any form.

2. QUEEN ANNE’S LACE:

Here’s how you can use the herb: 8 hours after, take a tablespoon of Queen Anne’s Lace and chew the seeds. To get the maximum effect, do this for 7 days.

3. BLUE COHOSH:

This herb was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans as a contraceptive. The herb works as a contraceptive on the principle that it maximizes menstrual flow, acting as an emmenagogue. This herb can be combined with other herbs to make it work like contraceptive and maximize the effect. It can also cause severe results which not only include maximum menstrual flow but also abortions. Pennyroyal has leaves which may be used dried or fresh.

Although Pennyroyal is a very effective contraceptive, it should be used cautiously. It can not only damage the nervous system but also cause liver and kidney issues. It may even disturb your hormonal cycle. One should make sure not to drink more than 300mg of Pennyroyal in the timespan of 6 days. In case you do not get your period or you get more than 10 days late, you should stop Pennyroyal intake immediately. The herb should be used immediately after for full effect.

Here is how you can use the herb: You may take 8 ounces of water, which may be distilled or spring and add one teaspoon of dried leaves of Pennyroyal after you have taken it off the stove. Let it stand for 15 to 15 minutes and then strain it. You may also add in a small amount of honey.
