Which Birth Control is Right for Me?

Birth control is how you prevent pregnancy before it occurs.  There’s no one-size-fits-all method – it’s a personal choice you’ll make for yourself, one that’s measured and that may change over time considering your age and lifestyle.  There’s a lot to consider when deciding which one is right for you, such as:

  1. Convenience
  2. Effectiveness
  3. Cost

Common Birth Control Methods:

There are well over a dozen methods.  Here are the most common:

Each of these varies in cost, effectiveness and convenience.  Also, most do not protect you from STDs.

Birth control serves a purpose.   Reasons for why and which one is best suited for you will change over time.  Choose wisely.  Schedule regular exams with your OBGYN to ensure that the choice you may have made years ago, is still the right choice.
