Birth Control Basics
Pregnancy can be the most beautiful and fulfilling experience in a woman’s life. But an unplanned pregnancy can also throw your life into turmoil. Birth control can help you plan your pregnancies so that both you and your partner are prepared physically, emotionally – and, yes– financially, too.
Finding the birth control method that’s right for you means understanding the options, how well they work, and any possible side effects. Understanding how each method works will help you use it correctly and maximize effectiveness.
Remember, other than sterilization, none of these methods are absolutely fail-safe. Also keep in mind that most birth control methods do not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s).
Ask your doctor which choices might be best for you, and then make an informed decision. Like many women, you may find that different methods are right for different stages of your life.
