A question was put up on Quora asking how people prevent impregnation before the invention of condoms. From there, we got to know different things that people in olden days have used to do the job. It is said that they have used a variety of means. We are here to tell you.

The oldest and most common form of contraception is said to be coitus interruptus or withdrawal or pull-out method.

It is said that if done perfectly, though very hard to do, only 4 per 100 women per year using this method would get pregnant.



 

Casanova in the 17th century used condoms made out of sheep intestines to prevent impregnation. It is porous and therefore likely to leak, but still better than nothing.

It is said that various materials, ranging from cotton to date pits to crocodile dung, were used to insert into the vagina to act as barriers to fertilization. Douching to remove the sperm of the vagina was said to be a common one.

 

People also choose times to have sex when women were believed to be less fertile.

But originally they got it exactly opposite of reality. They thought a woman was most fertile around the time of her period.

However, it is said that most of these either had no effect or put the mother’s health at risk.
