At all times, women (and not only them) were interested in the issue of protection from unwanted pregnancy. Folk contraceptives were known in ancient Egypt. Egyptian women mixed crushed acacia shoots with honey and dates. This mixture was then introduced into the vagina.
The effect of this method was based on the fact that acid was formed from acacia plant glue, and it reduced the activity of spermatozoa. There were folk contraceptives with abortifacient properties, they still exist today.
Folk contraceptives are popular now. Some gynecologists refer to them interrupted sexual intercourse and calendar method (5 days before and 5 days after the monthly it is impossible to get pregnant).
The simplest folk method is syringing with an acidic solution immediately after intercourse. A little vinegar (2 tablespoons per 1 liter of water) or citric acid (2-5 grams per 1 liter) is added to the solution. Some women insert lemon slices or aspirin into the vagina. All these methods are aimed at increasing the acidity of the vagina. In too acidic environments, spermatozoa lose moisture, lose their ability to conceive, and die.
It is said that the presence in the diet of 30% of peas leads to a contraceptive effect.
There is also a rumor that after intercourse, you must eat canned corn and do not get pregnant.
