Choosing a Method

What things should I think about when choosing a birth control method? To choose the right birth control method for you, consider the following:

  • How well does it prevent pregnancy?
  • How easy is it to use?
  • Do you need a prescription?
  • Does it protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?
  • Do you have any health problems?
