What kind of oral contraceptives are available?
What type of IUD should I get?
How does the birth control implant work?
The birth control implant, Nexplanon®, is a small implant that your OB/GYN inserts in your upper arm. It releases progestin steadily into your blood to prevent pregnancy for up to three years. Nexplanon is over 99% effective.
How do birth control injections work?
Your OB/GYN administers Depo-Provera® birth control injections once every three months, and they’re about 99% effective. For maximum effectiveness, it’s crucial that you have your injections on time.
How do birth control patches work?
You apply birth control patches to your skin and change them every week. After three weeks of weekly patch changes, you go a week without a patch. Birth control patches contain both estrogen and progestin. When used perfectly, birth control patches are 99% effective. But, with typical use, they’re about 91% effective.
How does the birth control ring work?
The birth control ring, NuvaRing®, contains both estrogen and progestin. You wear the ring in your vagina for a month at a time, and then use a fresh one. With perfect use, NuvaRing is 99% effective, but with typical use, they’re about 91% effective.
