The Trotula are three texts on women’s medicine written during the 12th century in Salerno, Italy. The name derives from a female physician and medical writer, Trota of Salerno, who was associated with one of the texts.

Some hot contraception tips from Trotula Texts:

1. Carry the womb of a goat which has never had offspring against your naked flesh.

2. Remove the testicles from a male weasel, carry the testicles in your bosom tied in a goose skin.
