生理の習慣がある健康な身体を持つ女性に取って、男性と性交渉を持つということは、少なからず妊娠する可能性は生じるもので、子供を欲しいと考えていないのであれば、避妊対策は確実に取らなければなりません。
日本では、まだまだ避妊を男性任せにする女性も多く、コンドームが最もポピュラーな避妊方法だといわれており、途中ではずれてしまった、破れていた、射精前につけたといった要因などで、望まない妊娠をしてしまっている女性も少なくありません。
妊娠してしまえば、身体はどんどん変化していくので、妊娠を継続させ母親になるか、産むことのできない環境であれば、残念ではありますが中絶手術を受けるしかありません。
どちらにしても、心と身体に強い負担を強いられるのは女性だけで、望んでいない妊娠という事態で傷がつくのは、男性ではなく女性一人だけです。

こういったことにならないためにも、確実な方法である避妊薬を服用するのが最適で、コンドームなどに任せるよりも数段安心です。
避妊薬を毎日忘れることなくきちんと服用していれば、現存する避妊方法の中ではもっとも確実だといわれており、ほぼ百パーセントに近い確率で妊娠を回避することが可能です。
近年では、低用量ピルが解禁となったことにより、以前よりもさらに身体にリスクがなく、避妊薬を服用できるようになっています。
この低用量ピルは、避妊効果を高めるだけではなく、女性には切っても切れない毎月の生理に伴う、様々悩みを改善させてくれるので、服用するようになると日常生活の質は、格段にアップします。
今まで生理だからとあきらめていたことも、普段通りに行えるようになり、辛い生理痛に苦しむこともなくなります。

コンドームに比べて、明らかに高い避妊成功率を誇っている避妊薬のピルは、女性が自らの意思で、望まない妊娠をしっかりと予防できる効果があります。
男性と性交渉の機会を持つ女性には、ぜひとも利用してもらいたい医薬品です。

この避妊薬には服用に当たって注意点もあるので、飲み始める場合は婦人科クリニックを受診して、医師の診察を受け、様々な検査をきちんと受けたうえで服用することが大切です。
特にたばこを吸う女性は、ピルを服用すると血栓ができやすくなってしまうという報告が上がっており、服用に当たっては慎重にならなければなりません。
血栓ができてしまうと、心筋梗塞や脳卒中など、重篤な疾患を引き起こすリスクも高まってしまうので、特に35歳以上の喫煙者にはピルは処方しないというクリニックも多いようです。
しかしたばこの害は、避妊薬の服用云々以前の問題で、発ガン性物質を含むものなので、様々な病気の原因になるといわれているのでできるだけ早目に禁煙するのが望ましいものです。
女性に取ってたばこは、美容効果を著しく損なうものであり、まさに百害あって一利なしです。
ピルを服用していなくてもタバコや過度の飲酒は、血がドロドロになり血栓ができやすくなってしまうので、健康で過ごすためにも、禁煙に向けて努力を行うことは必重要な問題です。

この避妊薬のピルは、女性に取っては実に多くの利益がある薬で、日常生活における様々な問題を改善してくれ、快適な毎日を送れるようにしてくれます。
ホルモンバランスを整える効果があるので、生理周期を安定させたり、生理痛の緩和や生理前のイライラ、むくみなど、身体に起こるいろいろな不具合を軽減させてくれます。

生理に何らかの間違いがあったときには、避妊薬を使うことによってその間違いを修正することが出来ます。

避妊薬の本来の役目は、性行為によって妊娠しないように生理の時期を遅らせたりすることです。
しかし、こうした用法を利用することによって日常生活の中で生じている生理の不順を修正することも出来るようになっているのです。
実際に、避妊薬を利用することで間違いを容易になおすことが出来ます。

避妊薬には、身体を妊娠中であると誤認させるためのホルモンが混ざっているので排卵を起こさせない作用が存在します。
そのため、周期が始める前に避妊薬を使っておけば、その期間の間は絶対に生理がやってこないことになるのです。
つまり、物理的に生理の期間を遅らせることに成功します。
生理を遅らせることに成功したときにはその服用をやめれば、約2日から5日くらいの感覚で周期が戻ってくるようになるため健康的な身体を取り戻すことが出来るようになるのです。

また、これを利用すれば逆のこともできます。
つまり、避妊薬を利用すれば生理を早めることが出来るようになるのです。
周期が終わるころに薬を飲むと、今度はその状態で妊娠したと錯覚させる状態が続くことになるため、生理前の状態に身体を戻すことが出来るのです。
こうすれば、周期を早めることも出来るようになるので大変便利です。

さらに、妊娠中であることを錯覚させるための薬であるため利用すればその期間中は排卵が行われなくなるので痛みを緩和することができます。

女性の場合は、生まれて思春期が経過した段階でこの症状に常に悩まされることになるため自身の身体を上手くリセットできるようにしておかなくてはいけません。
避妊薬はそのために役に立つ薬なのです。

男女間で行う性行為はいつの時代においてもあるものといえます。
人間が行う営みの一つということができます。
性行為の目的には、子孫の繁栄や快楽の追及などがあるとされています。
また、夫婦間で行う性行為では、互いの愛情を確かめ合うといった要素もあるとされています。

性行為をする際には、妊娠ということを意識しなければいけないとされています。
避妊を全く意識せずに、性行為に及んだ場合には、大きな快楽を得やすいとされています。
しかしながら、万一、妊娠という状況に至った場合には、中絶をしなければいけなくなるなどのリスクがあるということを忘れてはいけません。
女性の身体への負担や精神的ストレスを考えると避けなければいけないといえます。

そんな中で、避妊具を使用することの重要性が叫ばれてきています。
特に、男性がコンドームなどの避妊具を使用することがいいとされています。
一般的には、コンドームをすることにより、快感が半減するという男性が多いとされています。
しかし、女性の身体のことを考えて、きちんと着用する男性も増えているといわれています。
そのような男性には、女性の印象は良くなるとされています。
今後も避妊具の必要性は注目され続けるといわれています。

National Scouting News

IRVING, TX (November 13, 2019) – The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Boy Scouts of America have announced the official roll out of the Auxiliary's Sea Scouts youth development initiative, which integrates members of Sea Scout ships (units) into Auxiliary shore-side and underway training and missions both shoreside and underway. In 2018, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and Coast Guard Auxiliary signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) establishing BSA's Sea Scout program as the Auxiliary's official youth program. The agreement broadens the Auxiliary's efforts to reach out to young boaters and encourages them to consider Coast Guard and maritime careers.

“Designating Sea Scouts as the official youth program of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the most important initiative the Auxiliary has ever undertaken. I believe working with our Sea Scout partners will bring new opportunities to both groups,” said Larry King, Auxiliary National Commodore.

“Working with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary will give Sea Scouts an opportunity to benefit from Coast Guard seamanship and vocational training, while giving Sea Scouts a unique introduction to the Coast Guard,” said T.W. Cook, Sea Scout National Commodore.

Recognizing Sea Scouts as the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary's official youth program provides a number of important benefits, including:

Auxiliary flotillas are encouraged to support existing Sea Scout ships and to establish new Sea Scout ships where there are currently none. Working with Auxiliary members greatly enhances the resources available to youth in the Sea Scout program by engaging more adult leaders with seamanship skills, training and access to vessels into the program All Sea Scouts and leaders are now automatically associate members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Association. Additionally, any Sea Scout may apply for full Auxiliary membership. The minimum joining age remains 17 years old for non-Sea Scouts. Auxiliary programs will facilitate advanced science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-oriented training.

Details of these changes and more are available on the Auxiliary's AuxBWiki website at tinyurl.com/AuxBWiki .

Starting with an initial MOA in 2009, which established a framework for cooperation between the two organizations, the BSA and Coast Guard Auxiliary have been working together to promote recreational boating safety, as well as to share communications and manpower resources over the past decade.

“The BSA is proud to continue our partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary as we continually strive to improve leadership development, real-life skill-building and unique STEM training through the Sea Scout program,” said Patrick Sterrett, Assistant Chief Scout Executive and National Director of Field Service of the Boy Scouts of America.

The Boy Scouts of America highlights anti-bullying efforts incorporated in current Scout programming

IRVING, TX (September 17, 2019) – Generation Z believes bullying is the biggest issue facing their generation, according to new data. A survey of American youth ages 6 to 17, commissioned by the Boy Scouts of America, found that bullying ranked as the top concern for young people on a community, national and global level.

The survey asked young Americans to prioritize their top five from a list of roughly 20 issues in the local community, the U.S. and the world. Thirty percent said bullying was one of the problems they most wanted to solve across the globe, and 32% said it was the biggest issue in the country. On a local level, Gen Z ranked bullying (28%), hunger (28%) and care for the elderly (27%) as the top three issues they see themselves helping to improve in their community.

From daily good deeds to service projects, the Boy Scouts of America has been actively working to equip kids with the tools they need to counteract bullying throughout their communities and daily lives. All Scouts participate in anti-bullying training and learn to live by the Scout Law, a foundational element of Scouting that includes 12 guiding characteristics that include being helpful, trustworthy and kind. In fact, a 2015 Tufts University study showed children involved in Cub Scouts were significantly more kind and helpful than non-Scouts.

“My son is in a local Scouting troop here in Lakeville, Minnesota and it has changed his life,” said Katie Dettmann. Her son Alden has autism. She says Scouts BSA is the first place where her son has not been judged. “It's a peer group that's very accepting and welcoming. He can take risks, try new things and grow with the encouragement and support of his peers.”

“Scouting is one of my favorite things I've ever been a part of. I've met people from all over the world and I get along with them. We learn so much from each other,” said Alden Dettmann.

The desire for inclusivity and kindness resonates well beyond Alden's family. According to the survey, 86% of young Americans said that not being bullied is a daily priority. And 97% said being kind to others is an important aspect of daily life.

Multiple Eagle Scout projects, a substantial service project that's required to attain the program's highest rank, have tackled bullying and inclusivity in recent years. One Scout even rallied his community to construct a musical playground that was fully accessible for students with physical or mental challenges. And merit badges offered by Boy Scouts of America, such as Disability Awareness and American Cultures, help kids understand and respect each other's differences while building character and leadership skills.

This desire to help make the world a better place is inherent in Gen Z, according to the study. Seventy-six percent said they believe their generation has the ability to make positive change in the world. Other top issues they want to tackle globally are poverty (28%), human rights (26%) and access to education (24%).

Survey highlights:
• 97% of those surveyed said being kind to others is important
• 84% said they want to be a part of solving issues in the future in their community
• 79% said improving their community is very important
• 50% said the reason they focus on some of these issues is because their parents are passionate about them
• Bullying was the top concern among respondents with 28% of respondents seeing themselves helping improve bullying at the community level, 32% at the national level and 30% at the global level
• Other top concerns respondents want to help solve are hunger (28%) and care for elders (27%) at the local level, animal rights (28%) and recycling (28%) at the national level and poverty (28%) and human rights (26%) at the global level

¹A 2015 study by Tufts University worked to answer that question and many others through research which measured the character attributes of both Scouts and non-Scouts. The survey included 2,000+ Scouts and non-Scouts aged 6-12 in the Philadelphia area.

Fifty Years After NASA Astronaut and Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong Set Foot on the Moon NASA Astronaut and Assistant Scoutmaster Drew Morgan Will Speak to Scouts at the 24th World Scout Jamboree Directly from the International Space Station

Glen Jean, WV (July 19, 2019) – As 45,000 Scouts from over 150 countries prepare to kick of the 24th World Scout Jamboree, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and NASA will come together to inspire today's youth to expand their possibilities with a unique event that builds on Scouting's iconic connection to the historic 1969 Moon landing.

Fifty years after NASA astronaut and Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong sent greetings from space to participants of the 1969 National Scout Jamboree, NASA astronaut Drew Morgan will inspire a new generation of Scouts directly from the International Space Station as he answers questions posed by Scouts attending the World Scout Jamboree at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia at 1:30 p.m. EDT on July 24. View it live at www.nasa.gov/nasatv.

The World Scout Jamboree, which is held every four years, provides life-changing activities focused on adventure, sustainability, peace and community service. Inspired by the theme “Unlock a New World,” young men and women will celebrate the international tradition of Scouting during the two-week long 24th World Scout Jamboree that will take place in the United States for the first time since 1967.

For April McMillan, National Director of Programs for the Boy Scouts of America and former researcher at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the inspiration that Scouting provides young people is endless.

“Through every merit badge, adventure and service project, the programs of the Boy Scouts of America have been providing character and leadership opportunities for young men and women for more than a century,” McMillan said. “As this generation faces a new frontier of opportunities and challenges, the best thing we can do for these future leaders is to empower them with a sense of curiosity to explore the many wonders the world, and the self-reliance to find solutions within themselves, their communities and the world that surrounds them.”

And Scouts are doing just that. In fact, interest in exploration continues to propel Scouts who last year earned more than 175,000 space-related merit badges, including astronomy, engineering, environmental science, geology and space exploration, with the newest Exploration merit badge growing in interest by 60 percent in the last year.

For those young men and women and many others, “The Eagle has landed,” – the iconic words proclaimed by Neil Armstrong – hold special meaning as they dream of walking in the footsteps of the famous astronauts of the Apollo 11 mission, especially given the many connections between NASA and Scouting. While it is well known that Eagle Scout Neil Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the Moon, it was fellow NASA astronaut and Eagle Scout Jim Lovell who suggested that the lunar module be named Eagle. And five years before that, in 1964, NASA sent a group of astronauts on geological trips to the BSA's Philmont Scout Ranch to introduce them to geologic concepts they might find on the Moon. Today, every Scout starting a backcountry trek at Philmont enters through the same doors and can stand in the same spot as Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and so many other incredible people who went through before them as they consider the path and possibilities that await them.

The Sinatra Center's “Protect Yourself Rules” Educational Videos and Lesson Plans Will Soon be Available to Cub Scouts Nationwide

RANCHO MIRAGE, CA (June 20, 2019) – Today, the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center and Boy Scouts of America formally announced a partnership that will introduce the “Protect Yourself Rules” program to more than 1.2 million Cub Scouts nationwide. Through animated videos and ancillary learning material developed specifically for younger audiences, the program aims to educate children about how to recognize inappropriate behavior, including how to distinguish between safe and unsafe touches, and what to do when confronted with abusive behavior.

The program has been developed and scripted by child advocates, psychologists, and national scholars and tested at various stages of development with students, teachers, school administrators, parents, and experts in the field of child abuse. The videos are separated into two age and grade groups: kindergarten through third grade and fourth grade through sixth.

Jon R. Conte, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus at the University of Washington and Director of the Joshua Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse who assisted in the development of the series notes: “Few things are as clear in efforts to prevent sexual abuse as is the importance of providing children with the knowledge and skills to identify risk situations and to avoid, escape, or disclose abuse before it happens or after it happens once. This partnership will greatly expand the number of children, and those who love them, with information to help them prevent abuse. No other prevention method is known to be as affective.”

In the animated lessons, the normally complex facets of abuse prevention and intervention focus on two basic elements: children must understand and recognize abuse, and they must feel empowered to say “no” any time they are made to feel uncomfortable. In addition to the videos, the program comes with age and grade-appropriate learning materials and printable extension lessons, designed to foster fundamental understanding of the initiative's core teachings.

“The ‘Protect Yourself Rules' campaign has reached millions of children across the country since it launched over two years ago,” explained John Thoresen, Chief Executive of the Foundation and the Barbara Sinatra Center for Abused Children. “We are so proud to be working with the Boy Scouts of America to expand the reach and impact of this critically important initiative.”

Barbara Sinatra Center began development of the “Protect Yourself Rules” in early 2015 and formed a partnership with Boy Scouts of America in 2019, expanding access to these educational resources to millions of young children across the nation. The Center's video content and lesson plans will build upon and enhance existing programming Boy Scouts of America utilizes to promote personal safety and youth protection that the organization first introduced to the Scouting community in 1986, a groundbreaking step at the time intended to help keep children safe.

“It is a privilege and honor to help prepare youth for their futures through our nation's foremost program of character development and values-based leadership training. This comes with an important duty: as an organization, we are focused on keeping children safe, supported and protected,” said Michael Surbaugh, Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America. “Our partnership with the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center is an important example of one of the many steps we take to regularly update our efforts to ensure we are doing everything we can to protect youth.”

In support of its youth education and protection efforts, “Protect Yourself Rules” is also endorsed by: National YMCA, National Rural Health Educators, Association of American Educators, National Association of School Psychologists. In addition to the Boy Scouts of America, many schools throughout the United States are using the “Protect Yourself Rules” to comply with state mandated abuse protection education in schools.

An estimated 700 children are counseled annually on an outpatient basis, and no child is ever turned away because of a family's inability to pay. For more information, visit: BarbaraSinatraChildrensCenter.org. The animated video series was funded by the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center Foundation and has over 13 million YouTube views, many in classrooms throughout the United States and in many foreign countries. Those 13 million views have conservatively reached over 100 million.
