Ask Dr. Deep : Which is the best method of contraception?
There is no “”best”” method of birth control. Everyone is different, and some methods may suit your lifestyle and health more than others. Each method also has its pros and cons.
All women and men can have control over when, and if, they become parents. But making choices about birth control, or contraception, isn’t easy. There are many things to think about. To get started, learn about birth control methods you or your partner can use to prevent pregnancy. You can also talk with your doctor about the choices.
Before choosing a birth control method, think about:
-Your overall health
-How often you have sex
-The number of sex partners you have
-How well each method works to prevent pregnancy
-Possible side effects
-Your comfort level with using the method
Keep in mind, even the most effective birth control methods can fail. But your chances of getting pregnant are lowest if the method you choose is always used correctly every time you have sex.
