The average American woman is fertile up until that age of 40. If a woman decides to have children a certain point, it is essential that a woman selects a birth control method that is conducive with your lifestyle.
Finding a birth control method appropriate for you is a matter of considering a series of lifestyle questions. Many factors should be taken into consideration as far as the side affects are concerned. Since different contraceptives offer varying advantages and drawbacks, use the following questions to help you decide the best
contraceptive for you:
As you'll see, numerous contraceptive options are available.
- How often do you engage in sex?
- Do you have a steady sexual partner?
- How will the birth control method affect your sexual experience?
- What are your objectives in planning for sex?
- Do you plan to have a family in the future?
- How comfortable do you feel about the insertion of contraceptive devices in your body?
- How diligent are you about following directions?
- What is the effectiveness rate of the birth control method?
- Do you smoke cigarettes?
Although the birth control pill is the most popular used form of contraceptive, tubal sterilization runs a close second behind the pill. Prophylactic condoms are the third most commonly used form of contraception. Other prevalently used forms of birth control include the following: -- vasectomy, inject-able, withdrawal methods, Intra-Uterine Devices (IUDs), coupled with periodic abstinence.
The “Morning After” pill has been the topic of significant controversy.
But regardless of the form of contraception one decides to use, it should be a decision that a woman is comfortable with and prepared to follow the instructions prescribed by their OB/GYN.
