Birth Control Options


Are you a woman who is currently unsure as to whether or not you are ready for parenthood?  If that is the case, are you currently sexually active?  If you are, are you using any form of birth control?  Parenting and pregnancy are all important issues, ones that are difficult to back down from. For that reason, if you are not looking to become a mother just yet, it is important that you take the time to familiarize yourself with all of your birth control options.

Perhaps, the most popular and most well-known birth control method is that of condoms. Condoms, in most cases, are highly effective against preventing pregnancy. On rare occasions, they can break or leak, but you are typically safe.  Just be sure to purchase a brand of condoms that is known for their strength and durability.  What is nice about this popular birth control method, is that you are often not only protected against pregnancy, but sexually transmitted diseases as well.

Although condoms are an effective birth control method used by many, there are many women and men who prefer not to use them.  If you are not interested in handling the issue of the birth and upbringing of a child, it is important that you take the time to familiarize yourself with the other options that you have for birth control. A few of those other options, outlined below, are ones that may not be as well-known or as popular as condoms, but they are typically just as effective.

Birth Control Pills are a hormonal form of birth control.  Birth control pills require the taking of a pill each and everyday of the month. Birth control pills are known as being effective, as long as they are taken as directed. As with many other medications, birth control pills are not ideal for smokers, as they may cause additional health complications.  With a large selection of birth control pills, including ones that eliminate your menstrual period, you are sure to find something that can offer you assistance.

IUDs are also effective forms of birth control.Intra-Uterine Devices (IUDs) come in a number of different formats, but they are still designed to protect you from pregnancy. This is either done with the use of a copper device, which is spermicidal, or ones that release progestin.  


Aside from condoms,birth control pills and IUDs, the next most popular form of birth control is another hormonal method. This birth control method is commonly referred to as the Depo shot. The Depo Shot has one main downfall and that is that it has been linked to a poor absorption of calcium. That is why many Depo users are urged to take calcium supplements each day. What is nice about the Depo shot is that it is not only effective at preventing pregnancy, but it is also administered on a three-month schedule and periods are often a thing of the past. 

As of now, I am using this method but my Ob gyne had advised me to change my birth control options since I had been using this method for almost 2 years and she said it is not good for my bones. My Depo shot will expire on August and I will just wait until my normal menstruation comes before  I will change my birth control option using Birth Control Pills.
