It's not everyone's ambition to have and raise a family, and there are a variety of reasonable reasons for this, including financial and timing issues, health concerns, and relationship dynamics. In other words, every sexually active adult has the right to decide whether or not to have children. Let's face it: unprotected intercourse almost always leads to pregnancy. Unplanned and unwanted pregnancies are common, and a large number of them are said to be terminated every year around the world. WHO reports that Six out of 10 of all unintended pregnancies end in an induced abortion”. According to Zoey, 1 in 5 Singaporean pregnancies are terminated due to an unwanted/unplanned pregnancy. As a result, folks who aren't ready to become parents must take steps to avoid becoming pregnant as a result of their sexual behavior. There is a strong connection between this and birth control, which simply means any procedure that prevents pregnancy. The question now is, how much would it cost me to be on birth control. We are about to help you come up with a budget for birth control. This article will answer all of your questions about the various techniques and types of birth control available in Singapore and how much they cost. The following are Singapore's birth control choices and associated costs: Condom The most widely used method of birth control in the world, including in Singapore. It is one of the most cost-effective kinds of birth control available in Singapore, and it prevents the sperm from entering the vagina and reaching the fertilized eggs, therefore preventing pregnancy. Condoms come in both male and female varieties. Clinics, drug stores, and even online retailers sell condoms. The price ranges from $4 to $60, depending on the brand and the buyer's budgetary constraints and preferences. Birth Control Pills In Singapore, this is a prevalent method of birth control. When a woman takes these medications to prevent ovulation, the sperm cannot fertilize eggs. Cervical mucus becomes thicker as a result of the pills, preventing anything from getting into the uterus. You may get a mini-pill (progesterone-only) or the pill ( estrogen and a progestogen), as they're commonly referred to, from pharmacies, clinics, and even online retailers. They come in packs and should be taken daily. Microgynon 30 (from polyclinics), Yasmin, Yaz, and Diane-35 are the most commonly prescribed and widely available birth control pills in the city-state.The price ranges from $15 to $50, depending on which brand you choose to buy. Intrauterine Device This method of birth control works by stopping sperm from reaching the eggs and fertilizing them. A medical professional inserts a copper T-shaped device into the uterus. The coil is another name for it. This has a 99.9% success record and is quite trustworthy. Different varieties are available, but only copper UID, a naturally occurring spermicide, can help prevent pregnancy by blocking sperm from entering the cervix, and it has a half-life of up to five years. IUD insertion costs vary depending on the type of facility, with private facilities costing more. Typically, the price ranges from $200 to $500. Birth Control Patch A birth control patch is another method of birth control in Singapore. You wear a patch every week to produce estrogen and progesterone in the body, which prevents ovulation. In addition to the buttocks, it can also be used on the stomach, arms, and thighs. Except during menstruation, the patch must be changed every week. The cost of a month's supply is between $30 and $50. Morning after Pills/ Emergency Pills Preventing pregnancy with these pills is the best option in the event of a condom breaking, condoms pulling out, the failure to wear a condom, or the failure to take birth control pills. To avoid implantation and pregnancy, these tablets are administered following an unprotected sexual encounter. They must be taken within 48 hours of having intercourse in order to be 85% effective. Clinics, pharmacies, and internet stores all carry them, and they cost between $20 and $60, depending on the facility and the brand. Contraceptive injection Preventing ovulation and thickening the cervical mucus to make it impossible for sperm to cross and fertilization to occur are the only goals of most birth control methods. Thus, ovulation can be prevented by administering this shot to the arm or buttocks every three months. Each injection or shot costs between $150 and $200. Contraceptive implant This is a long-term contraceptive option. A doctor  inserts  a  progesterone implant under the upper arm which releases hormones gradually to prevent pregnancy. The implant is flexible and is mostly made of plastic. This implant lasts for three years and has a success rate of 99% and costs between $400-$600 Sterilization/Surgery Both couples can use this method of permanent birth control, just as they can with condoms. A man can have a treatment called a vasectomy, and women can have a procedure called a ligation to permanently end their pregnancies. Vasectomies are quick and painless procedures that shut the scrotum's tubes to prevent sperm from accessing the sperm capsules. Estimated costs range from $200 to $3000, with private hospitals expected to cost more. Ligation is a surgical procedure in which the fallopian tubes are clipped or cut to stop the eggs from moving from the ovaries to the uterus. Ligation is more expensive than vasectomy in Singapore since it is a more difficult surgical operation. Depending on the hospital and the doctor, the cost can range from $1000-$1500. This method of birth control is nearly 100 percent effective. As you have seen, there are a number of options available to women in Singapore, including condoms and tablets, which may be purchased from pharmacies, health clinics, and even online sites. All you have to do now is pick the one that works best for you and your companion. To ascertain this, see a doctor.
