Do my Christian brethren agree that to work until you exhausted and cast automatically into a deep sleep is another form of birth control? like the Japanese people who work every day for 12 hours the reason why fertility rate their is so low.

I asked this because I know using birth control medicines almost frequently might give some bad effects to your body.

Do you recommend it?

That sounds borderline crazy to me. Nobody works themselves to death as a birth control method. That can certainly be a side effect of working long hours constantly, but doing so with the intention of preventing pregnancy? Seriously doubtful.

Your example is the Japanese- what you said is only sort of correct. Japan's birth rate is low because they are a career-driven society. They aren't working to prevent babies, they're working because that's the culture. Japanese women receive better educations than women in many other countries. They move on to careers. They can often support themselves with no need of marrying- and therefore they're also not having babies at the same rate as women in poorer countries.

As far as recommending overworking and exhaustion as birth control... no. There are a couple of reasons- one, even an exhausted person can manage to have sex once in a while. Two, there are less absurd ways to prevent pregnancy.

No, I certainly do not recommend it. I don't understand your fixation on the topic of birth control.

I also wondered about why so many threads on the topic.

BC medicines isn’t the only way to prevent pregnancy.

Abstanance is the best birth control method. Especially if you are not married.

It is easy to say to abstain from sex especially you're a single like our priests.

Tell us, how to abstain from sex w/o taking birth control medicines? don't you recommend working longer until you're tired and fall asleep as a far to abstain from sex?

Some Japanese I talked with admitted that it is their form of birth control aside from taking birth control medicines.

In my **edited** country, our local Catholic clergy will never allow sex-ed to be taught at schools. they insist that only parents to teach their children about sexuality.

Fortunately, Reproductive Health Law was passed after 13 years of the persistent effort of the local clergy not to become a national law.

When I was studying, I never learned sex-ed at school until I graduated college.

so our youth learned sexuality through watching pornographic videos from the net and this is the reason why he have lots of cases of early pregnancies.

and I am sure some of our priests and bishops love it because more babies means more will give money to the Church (sacraments, contributions, alms for the dead and other pecuniary activities set by our local Catholic Church)

perhaps this might be the hidden agenda why they don't want sex-ed to be taught in our schools.

Um when sperm is ejaculated into the vagina that's what creates the baby lol... it has nothing to do with how much you worked. There are probably other more logical reasons japans birth rate is low, like if you work all day you have no time for sex.

If you want to prevent a baby, there is birth control, or a condom, or tying of men's or women's tubes via surgery. Or simply don't have sex.
