Over the years the practice of some women getting to drink water and salt after engaging in intercourse has been believed to be a natural “home-made remedy” for preventing pregnancy, however, in this article, we are going to examine how medically true this is.
According to a piece written on healthline.com, using contraceptives or birth control pills is one of the most effective methods to prevent pregnancy, these pills have a tiny amount of hormones, these hormones prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation or changing the lining of the uterus making it less likely for a fertilized egg to be implanted.
Now the act of drinking water with salt to prevent pregnancy is not a form of contraception, and that is because there hasn’t been any scientific evidence to prove that notion, and there are no elements inside the salt and water combination that has been effectively tested to prove this accurate, so the answer is no, drinking salt and water after intercourse wouldn’t stop a lady from getting pregnant.
The spread of this misconception must be stopped because most women have taken the practice as a habit, and this can cause harm to their bodies, according to a piece on medicalnewstoday.com, excessive intake of sodium is linked to some health problems such as hypertension, kidney disease, kidney disease, and osteoporosis, which can lead to some cardiovascular diseases and even stroke.
In conclusion, The American Heart Association (AHA) explained that; when sodium is too much in the blood, it pulls more water into the bloodstream, thus making the blood increase and as the blood then increases, the heart then has to start working harder than usual to pump it round the body. So if a woman wants to prevent pregnancy it is in her best interest to visit a clinic to know the best method that suits her body system.
