To overcome Mils problem fgr teenagers and for adults as well, literature offering in- formation cm hirth control and abortion has for some time been distributed free in Ixith- bridge by doctors, family .ser- vice workers, psychiatrists and .school counsellors. It appears that snch inform- ation is wanted and frequent- ly needed: GOO copies of an extensive magazine called Birth Control Handbook were placed In one LcUihridge scconclary education institu- tion during the summer, and within four days all books were gone and requests for more bad been received. "We must open our eyes to the said Jim Mac- Neil, director of student ser- vices at the Lcltibridgc Com- munity College, "It is essential that we dis- seminate fliis information. I'm not, to challenge the morals of the kids who come to me. If it comes down to birth control or n potential abortion, I wont them to know thR in human agony of an abortion. "In most cases, I try to refer them to their family doctors." The Birth Control Hand-1 book, provided lo Ixith LCC and University of IxMhrlclgo students, is ono which has been recommended by a num- ber of local physicians and gynecologists. Costs arc paid by the students' unions. While Iho handbook writers occasionally incorporate poli- tical comments, Iho 48-page Ixwklct in general covers ana- tomy, sexual intercourse, con- ception, venereal diseases, alwrtion, sterilization, and various contraception meth- ods. The book Is eblwratcly de- signed, with detailed sketches and photographs, and exten- sile surveys concerning tho effectiveness and risks of, var- ious methods of contraception. There are two types of oral contraceptives (birth control the combination type, which is n scries of identical pills taken daily for 21 days; and Ihc sequential type, which is a series o f two different types of pill taken on certain days of the menstrual cycle, one containing synthetic es- trogen, and one a combination of estrogen and progesterone. Sequential pills are gener- ally considered potentially moro dangerous because of Last in series the excessive amount of es- trogen hormono supplied lo the body. Briefly, the pills are effec- tive they mimic tho body's defence preg- nancy when already preg- nant, by creating a hormonal "pseudo-pregnancy" and pre- venting ovulation. Most side effects of the pill arc attributed to estrogen, and such effects as nausea, fluid retention and depression can occur. While in use, the pill is theoretically 100 per cent effective. The oral contraceptive is easily reversible. The preg- nancy rate uticn no longer on the pill is the same an for women who have never taken oral contraceptives and are attempting to become preg- nant. 'Die pill is available in Lclli- Ijridge on prescription after examination by a physician. The cost varies with the type of pill, but is on the average about for one month's .supply. There are three basic kinds of intrauterine device, most cf flexible plastic. The de- vice is inserted by a physi- cian into the uterus, where it can remain indefinitely and may be removed at any time by the physician. Side effects can include minor or severe cramps and heavy menstrual bleeding. Serious complications can be caused by the possible per- foration of the uterine wall by the IUD. The IUD is less effective lor women who have never Ireen pregnant than for wo- men children. Theoretic- al failure rate is 3.5 to eight per cent; failure rates tend, lo decline with further years of use. The contraceptive effect is completely reversible, and the IUJ) is inexpensive. IT The condom Is a slwaui worn on the penis during sex- ual intercourse. It has no ill side effects, and often helps to prevent venereal diseases. Tlie clinical failure rate is 10 lo 15 per cent. The condom is available from drug stores, pharmaceu- tical companies and family planning agencies without prescription. The average drug store price is to for three. diapSiragm and spermi- cidal jelly have a failure rate of iO to 20 per cent. The diaphragm is of soft rubber with s spring rim which serves as a mechanical barrier to fertilization. Each woman must be In- dividually fitted for a dia- phragm, and fitting should bo checked periodically. The wo- man inserts Uie diaphragm herself intercourse. The cost of fitting by a pri- vate doctor Is about to and less at a hospital or family planning clir.ic. Vaginal spermicides ore available as foams, creams or jellies, but the foams aro considered most effective and to use. The spermicidc must not 1x3 inserted more than one hour before intercourse. Possible side effects are allergy to one or Feveral brands of spermi- cide. Failure rate is 15 lo 25 per cent. Cost is from .52.50 to for 25 applications, No prescription is required, and spermicides are available in drug stores. Tho rhythm method In- volves abstinence from sex- ual intercourse on those ol tho menstrual cycle when tho woman is most likely to pregnant. This may determined by the calendar or lemperatura methods, or a combination. The failure rate is 15 to 30 per cent. Coitus Inlerruplus, or with- drawal, is the Interruption of sexual aclivity before tha male orgasm. There are several defects In (he method; some men aro physically incapable of using it, and there aro possible psychological ill effects. Failure rate is 20 lo 30 per cenl. recommendation of most counsellors talking lo young people about birth con- trol will be an immediate visit to the family doctor, who will provide advice and a con- traceptive method. j JERRY POTTS LOOKOUT?
