A barrier method of birth control is designed to keep the sperm from getting to the egg, thus putting up a barrier. The condom is the most commonly used barrier method. It is a sheath that covers the penis and keeps the sperm out of the vagina. This is not a new concept and has been around in one form or another for over 500 years. It is both easy to use and inexpensive. Other carrier forms of birth control include diaphragms and sponges, which may also include the use of spermicide.
These methods are all used at the moment and don't require continual use when you are not having sex. This makes it a popular choice as well as having an affordability factor. It does, however, have the highest failure rate.
Birth control pills were first released in the 1960s and have been very popular ever since. They gave women control over their reproduction which they had never had before. This method stops the production of eggs using hormones which makes them a very effective method of birth control. Today, it isn't just the pill, it can be a patch, implant, or injection.
IUD stands for intrauterine devices and these are devices that are inserted into the uterus by your doctor during an office visit. They can be effective for as long as ten years and have only a 1% failure rate. An IUD provides a long-term option for birth control, but it can be removed if you decide you want to get pregnant.
Sterilization should be considered a permanent solution to birth control in Pembroke Pines, FL. While there is potential for reversal, there is no guarantee. Both people have the option of sterilization. For men, it is a vasectomy and for women a tubal ligation. Vasectomy is an easier less invasive procedure but as a woman, if you are finished with fertility, you may want to take control and make sure it can't happen.
