How to stop a fertilized egg from implanting?

If you’re reading this, you may be wondering how to prevent implantation of fertilized eggs. Fear not, dear reader! We’ve got some tips and tricks that will have those pesky embryos running for the hills. Let’s dive right in!

The Birds and the Bees

Before we get into the deets, let’s quickly review how eggs become fertilized in the first place. When a sperm meets an egg (usually somewhere around the fallopian tubes), they join together to form a zygote – aka a fertilized egg.

The zygote then begins its journey down towards the uterus where it hopes to seek refuge in your endometrium (aka uterine lining) and start growing into a full-blown fetus.

But what if you don’t want that little bugger sticking around? Well lucky for you, there are ways to prevent implantation from happening altogether.

Hormonal Havoc

To understand how hormonal contraception can stop implantation, we need to look at how hormones affect your reproductive system.

When synthetic estrogen and progesterone (found in most forms of birth control pills) enter your body, they work by stopping ovulation from occurring – preventing any potential babymakers from squirming their way up into those hypothetical fallopian tubes.

But these hormones also thicken your cervical mucus making it harder for anyone looking to infiltrate your cervix…if ya know what I mean 😉 Without any present sperm becoming able enough swimmers— Pregnancy clock says zero!!

Copper Capers

Some folks prefer non-hormonal methods like using copper intrauterine devices or “IUDs.” These handy-dandy contraptions release tiny particles of copper inside of uterus vicinity which seriously impairs all sperms who had even some audacity to enter the zone.

If by some miracle, an egg gets fertilized (something rare in IUD users) – Copper can be a life saver! It makes those uterine walls too prickly for fertilized eggs to perform any elaborate clinging activities. Think of it like a “no vacancy” sign on your uterus’s door.

Plan B Plot Twist

What if you just had unprotected relations with someone at their peak fertility? Should one have run and got that pesky morning after pill within 72 hours of the “letting loose“? The active ingredient in most Emergency Contraception pills stops the ovaries from releasing any viable eggs! In an extremely rare instance where pregnancy did occur, there are instances when these tiny miracle makers make passage outta body harmlessly without irritating implantation possibility. So while die heart contraceptive naysayers might call EC-pills abortion— we can say, its quite hard to begin what has never started!

Living Libations

Remember in health class hearing about all natural contraception methods, like using lemons (this is news to us too folks) as makeshift sponges or tracking ovulation cycles through cervical mucus color evaluation?! While such ancient wisdom may be working well as just a great “gossip ice breaker” topic— none of these tricks actually work. These methods do not prevent pregnancy fully!! However keeping beads warm enough inside your intimate apparel was really never our cup tea anyhow.


And there ya have it – several options when considering how best to keep those invading embryos from claiming permanent residence, no matter how sneaky they try — now having learnt something new. Whether going for hormonal/non-hormonal ways or sticking with traditional measures- Well planned protection always pays off!!!

Just remember folks: ain’t nobody got time for unauthorized preggerz 😛
