There are many birth control options available today, and the choices can seem confusing.
This list can help you decide which method would best fit your lifestyle.
Hormonal Contraceptives work by preventing release of an egg from your ovaries into the uterus, and may also make the uterus an “unfriendly” environment for sperm. While most women know about the birth control pill, there are other hormonal birth control methods that are now available.
Nonhormonal Contraceptives prevent pregnancy by providing a barrier against sperm, or by interfering with sperm movement, or by creating an “unfriendly” environment for sperm. These methods do not use hormones, so they do not interfere with your natural reproductive cycle.
