Contraception is Your Choice. Make it Safe.
The selection of a contraceptive method is something that is unique to each woman. Multiple factors go into this decision. These factors commonly include things like relationship status, lifestyle preferences, and personal health history.
Contraception is a personal choice, and should be made with a full understanding of the benefits and risks associated with any method of birth control a woman may choose. It’s important for women to thoroughly research all birth control options and discuss those options with their healthcare provider to determine which birth control method best meets their needs in terms of both effectiveness and safety.
It’s important to weigh the options available to you carefully and address any questions you might have with your healthcare provider. You can download a list of questions to discuss with your healthcare provider or prescriber here: List of Questions.
