Contraceptive Myth

I am quite surprised about the outcome of a UK survey which revealed that myths about contraception may be widespread.

The survey found out that one in five women said they had heard of kitchen items, including bread, cling film and even chicken skin, being used as alternative barrier methods.

Others had heard food items such as kebabs, Coca-cola or crisps could be used as oral contraceptives.

The survey questioned 1,000 women aged 18 to 50 and was carried out by market research company Opinion Health, sponsored by Bayer Schering Pharma.

The survey indicates that appropriate information needs to be readily accessibly to the public about the availability of different methods of contraception, about their advantages and disadvantages.
