What should I consider before choosing a birth control method?

All women and men should be in control of if and when they decide to become parents. Birth control choices can be overwhelming. There are over a dozen of options to choose from. When it comes right down to it, the best birth control is the method you’re most likely to use. But here are some other things to consider as you decide.

  • Do you want to have children someday?
  • How soon do you want to have children?
  • What birth control is available?
  • Which is the safest method for me?
  • Which method is easy to use?
  • Will it affect menstruation?
  • What are the side effects?
  • What will it cost me?

There are many methods of birth control. Each method has it’s own benefits, no one method is right for everyone.

The 100% effective way of preventing unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections is to stay abstinent.

What are birth control methods?

Birth control or contraceptive methods can be grouped in two broad categories:

Surgical Methods (or Sterilization)

These are permanent methods of birth control.

These methods do not protect against STI’s and are used for persons who do not want any or more children.

Surgical Methods Include:
  • Vasectomy (Male Sterilization)
  • Tubal ligation (Tied tubes)
  • Selective Tubal Occlusion
  • Hysterectomy (removal of womb)
Non-surgical Methods:
  • These are methods which can be stopped at any time.
  • These include:
  • Oral contraceptives (The Pill)
  • Barrier Methods (Male & Female Condoms)
  • Intra Uterine Devices (IUD’S: Mirena/Skyla/Paraguard)
  • Depo Shot Implant (Implanon/Nexplanon)
  • Patch (Ortho Evra)
