Irene went to Naisamula village to demonstrate the different family planning methods, teaching about the side effects,and the solutions to the side effects.
The meeting started with a word from the chairman who thanked the members for turning up in big numbers for the health lesson, he then thanked kibo for the many efforts they have put in for the development of their village and there after asked the health education teacher to take over the meeting.
Irene started with a review of the previous lesson then she asked the members some of the different family planning methods. With views from members about the different methods like pills,condoms and more,Irene further divided the methods into two which is the natural and artificial methods giving the natural methods as the calendar method which works along with the moon bead gave an explanation of how the moon beads work, lactation which is effectively used in the first 3 months and the withdraw method.
Irene then explained the artificial methods explaining each like the IUD which ranges from five years to twelve years, how and were it’s inserted, the implant and other methods. The members also discussed some of the side effects which included heavy flows, missed periods, low sexual urge, weight gain among others which Irene suggested that for any side effect it’s always due to hormonal imbalance so one should always return to the service provider so as they can be helped, one should also give room to try out on the different methods Incase one fails to work for them, always visit a health center Incase of any effects and always receive the methods from a trained personal.
