Contraception Q & A

What is the best method of birth control contraception?

There is no “best” method of contraception. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages, pros and cons.

Men and women can have control over when and if they become parents. Choosing birth control and contraception can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. Before selecting a contraceptive, it’s helpful to think about your overall health, your number of sex partners, and how often you have sex.

To get started, learn about contraception methods you and your partner can use to prevent pregnancy. It’s important to also speak with your doctor about your choices.


What are the forms of contraception available?

Contraception or birth control refers to any method that prevents pregnancy. There are various forms and types of contraception, each of which has its risks and benefits.
