Contraception

Choosing a birth control method that is right for you and your partner is an important step to take in any sexual relationship. There are currently many contraception options available to both men and women, including those that can be taken after unprotected sex. Some contraceptions will also reduce the risk of infection by sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Condoms are one of the most popular contraception methods available. Male condoms are placed over a man's erect penis and have a high success rate in preventing the exchange of bodily fluids. A female condom is also available for insertion into the vagina. Although both male and female condoms are readily used during sex they do not offer 100% protection, so it is wise to use an additional birth control method as well as the condom.

Other high protection contraception methods include contraception pills. There are two types of oral pill available - a combined pill that contains the hormones estrogen and progestin and a mini-pill that holds progestin only. Both pills are very effective contraception methods as they prevent ovulation (egg release) from occurring, and if there is no egg to fertilise then you cannot become pregnant.
