Birth Control

 

Different contraceptive methods suit different people at different stages in their lives.  Luckily there are many effective options to choose from!

The hormonal methods available include: the birth control pill, the birth control patch (Evra), the birth control ring (NuvaRing), the birth control injection (Depo Provera), and the IUD.   There are non hormonal options as well if you do not think the pill, patch, ring or injection is the right choice for you.  It is important to always use condoms with your birth control for dual protection against sexually transmitted infections and unplanned pregnancies.     

Are you concerned about an incident of unprotected sex? Emergency Contraception Pills (ECPs) may prevent pregnancy if taken up to 5 days or 120 hours after unprotected sexual intercourse, when a condom breaks, or after a sexual assault. ECP are homonal pills that may prevent pregnancy by stopping the egg and sperm from joining an implanting in the uterine wall.  It is best to take ECPs as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse.  ECPs may reduce pregnancy by 89-65% depending on how soon they are taken, as well as how close a woman is to ovulation. http://www.sexandu.ca/contraception/emergency-contraception/
