The history of birth control Well we’re not all little kids here, we know about sex, and we know that we as humans like to have sex, unfortunately or fortunately depends on how you look at it, the product of the horizontal polka is a sweet little baby, and that might not always be wanted.
So therefore we have these neat things called contraceptives. The whole idea of contraceptives is not a new one. People have been using birth control for thousands of years, all the way back to Ancient Greece where linen condoms, dried fish powder, and sea sponges were used, and while they may not have had the efficacy rates of today’s birth control devices, they had their uses at the time. That being said, I would NOT recommend any of the types of birth control that have fallen out of use over the centuries. There is a reason they are no longer in use.
Some of them were ineffective at best, some of them could be downright deadly. We have better technology today. Now you might be asking about the different types of birth control. The forms of birth control that have been used over the years and currently include pesssaries, plants, condoms, and birth control pills.
Pessaries are vaginal suppositories. Used from ancient times to the present, they can be a fairly effective form of birth control
