What are various ways to avoid pregnancy? Elaborate any one method.
Contraception is the prevention of pregnancy by interfering with the normal process of ovulation, fertilisation and implantation.
There are 3 methods of contraception: (i) Barrier method (ii) Chemical method (iii) Surgical method.
1. Barrier method: In the barrier methods of preventing preganancy, the physical devices such as diaphragm (or cap) and condoms are used. Diaphragm (or Cap) is used by human females which is put over the cervix. Condoms are used by males.
2. Chemical method: In the chemical methods of preventing pregnancy, the females use two types of pills- oral pills and vaginal pills. The oral pills contain hormones which stop the ovaries from releasing ovum into the oviduct. The vaginal pills contain the chemical called spermicides which kill the sperms.
3. Surgical method: Vasectomy and tubectomy
(i) Vasectomy: It is a surgical method to block the gamete transfer. It is done in males. In this method, a small portion of the Vas deferens is removed by surgical operation and both the cut ends are ligated properly. This prevents the sperms from coming out.
(ii) Tubectomy – It is also a surgical method to block gamete transfer in females. In this method, a small portion of the fallopian tube is removed and the cut ends are ligated. This prevents the entry of ovum into the oviducts.

In the surgical method of birth control available for males, the structures A in the reproductive system are cut and ligated (tied up) at both ends. This prevents the reproductive cells B from coming out from the organs C where they are made in the male body. Since B cannot come out from the male body, they cannot fuse with cell D in the body of a female and hence pregnancy is prevented.
(a) What are structures A ?
(b) What are cells B?
(c) Name the organs C.
(d) What is cell D ?
(e) What is the name of this surgical procedure for birth control available to males?Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur- Biology
A, B and C are three common STDs. A and C are caused by bacteria whereas B is caused by a virus D. The virus D reduces the immunity of the infected person to such a low level that the person can die of even very mild diseases.

(b) What is B?
(c) Name the virus D ?
(d) How can A, B and C be caused ?

The human males use a device X made of a very thin rubber sheet as a covering on the male organ to prevent pregnancy. This device traps the gametes Y in it. In order to prevent pregnancy, the human females use a device Z which is a circle of rubber with a metal spring around it. The device Z is put inside the vagina to cover the cervix. It stops Y from going into the uterus.
(a) What is device X ?
(b) What are Y?
(c) Name the device Z.
(d) What is the general name of these methods of birth control (or preventing pregnancy) ?

In the surgical method of birth control available for human females, the structures P in the reproductive system are cut and ligated (tied up) properly at both ends. This prevents the reproductive cell Q released by an organ R from entering the structures P so that Q is not available to fuse with another reproductive cell S coming from the male reproductive system. In this way, pregnancy is prevented.

(b) What is cell' Q?
(c) Name the organ R.
