About Contraception

Contraception, also known as birth control practice is prevention of pregnancy by interfering with the whole process of conception and implantation. Numerous methods of birth control are available including barrier or hormonal method, withdrawal, natural family planning, abstinence, and sterilisation (surgery). Some of these methods are designed for women and others for men. Some are reversible and some are permanent.

What factors do I need to consider when selecting my contraceptive?

The choice of a particular method of contraceptive also depends on individual’s age, health, frequency of sexual activity, number of sexual partners, future pregnancy, wishes to have children in the future, and certain medical conditions. Therefore always discuss with your doctor about the choice of birth control method.
