How do you use castor seeds for birth control and family planning. How many castor seeds for birth control.How long does castor seed prevent pregnancy.
Since the beginning of time our foremothers have been using castor seeds as birth control. They used castor seed as contraceptive. It is true that castor seed has spermicidal property and can prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex… Even this generation of young women castor seed for birth control and even birth spacing.
How do women use castor seed for birth control and family planning?
I stumbled upon a post on Facebook where a lady stated she use castor seed for contraception and the dosage.
“Ok before we go to bed castor seed is now the new contraceptive pills everyone is using , while some complain it not working for them it works for some and it becomes another infertility issue on some. Concerning the dosage of castor seed for birth control, according to people that sell it, 1 castor seed for 1 year 2 castor seed s for 2 years, 3 castor seeds for 3 years. ABI ok to let you know it double years for some instead of 1 year it will be 2 or 4 or 6. Be careful.”
There is some evidence from scientific research on lab rats that a single dose of castor seeds with the outer coat removed (hulled) can work as a contraceptive for up to 8-12 months. But, have you considered the risks, castor seeds contains a toxic protein called ricin. Ricin can pose serious health challenges to consumers who use castor seeds to prevent pregnancy. Also, the world health organisation (WHO) and the World Gynaecology Association do not recommend castor seed as a natural contraceptive and they strongly speak against its use for birth control because of its toxicity. Even though castor seed works in preventing pregnancy, you and I know that it is not effective.
Forget castor seeds as a traditional methods of birth control, there are more effective methods of modern contraception and family planning.
