by: Ray Weiss, Staff Writer, Daytona Beach News Journal
Jane Sciortino never wanted children.
Over the years, she tried a variety of contraceptives from birth control pills to Norplant implants. But she always worried about the possible health risks associated with hormonal-based products. More...
How Quinacrine Antibiotic Works as a Contraceptive
When placed in the fallopian tubes, the quiancrine antibiotic causes the fallopian tubes to close off. This makes it impossible for an egg to pass through.
The QS procedure is non-surgical. To insert the pellets of quinacrine antibiotic into the patient's uterus, a doctor, nurse, or midwife uses a modified IUD inserter. The result permanently diables a woman's ability to become pregnant. More...
Contraceptive Use and the QS Procedure
Will the patient become sterile immediately following the procedure?
No. It takes 6-12 weeks for scars to develop in the fallopian tubes. Therefore, the patient must use another effective contraceptive method for 12 weeks after the first QS procedure. More...
The Quinacrine Sterilization Procedure Requires Two Visits
What if the patient can't return for a second insertion four weeks after the first insertion?
Can the patient become sterile from just one insertion? It is possible. However, research shows that patients having 2 insertions were half as likely to become pregnant as patients who only had one insertion. If the patient cannot return for a second insertion four weeks after her first, she should go to the clinic or call her doctor for advice on what to do. Until she returns for a second insertion, she is still susceptible to become pregnant; therefore, she should continue to use another contraceptive method. More...
Quinacrine Starilization Safety and Risks
As with most contraceptives, there are some risks in using Quinacrine Sterilization. However, researchers from around the world have studied the human safety of Quinacrine over the past 65 years. This research has concluded that QS is highly safe.
QS and Tubal Pregnancy
Is a tubal pregnancy possible after QS?
Although it is rare, a tubal pregnancy (a pregnancy which occurs outside of the uterus) is possible after QS (as it is also possible with most other contraceptive methods). QS does not cause tubal pregnancies, it just cannot prevent them. The tubal pregnancy rate with QS is lower than the rate in women who do not use contraception. More...
