If you had the option would you a) use Coke to wash out semen from your vagina or b) insert crocodile dung in it before sex. These days, most women would choose neither, but once upon a time, these options were valid birth control methods.

In a new video by New York City-based non-profit organization EngenderHealth, the group takes a look at some of the most bizarre types of contraceptives used by women throughout history.

While the facts may gross you out, the actual purpose of the video is to point out the lack of accessibility to contraceptives like condoms and birth control around the world. Called the WTFP?! campaign (Where's The Family Planning?!), the organization aims to raise awareness around some of these issues.

Guess what Canadian women used to use as a form of contraceptive? Hint: it includes a beaver. Watch the video above to find out.
