birth control


Question by  theid28 (15)

What are the different contraceptives?

I want to explore all options.


Answer by  elb (1105)

Barrier methods: condoms (male and female); diaphragm; cervical cap; spermicidal foams and sponges. Hormonal methods: pills, injections, and the vaginal ring. The IUD is an implanted device. Abstinence and natural family planning are behavioral methods. Work with a physician to choose the method best for your lifestyle, budget, and health.

Condoms are the most popular contraceptives and very effective if used properly. You can also use medicines, which may affect hormonal balances adversely, but they also offer other benefits such as acne control.


Answer by  monkeyz (3150)

The pill and condom are very common. Other alternatives are IUDs, both hormonal and copper, which are effective for a long time. Sponges, jellies, and spermicidal films are a messier option. Diaphragms are also fairly effective. Vasectomy and tubal ligation are slightly more permanent methods. The female condom is a less popular barrier method and is slightly less effective.
