Different Contraceptives - How to Choose One

June 30, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 99

Are you looking for the perfect method of birth control that will allow you to have an enjoyable sex life that is free of the worry of pregnancy? There are many different contraceptives available to you in case you wish to avoid unwanted pregnancies. There are all very different, in terms of how they are to be used and in the benefits that they offer you. A good understanding about the different contraceptives available is necessary before you can choose one that works best for you.

Barrier contraceptives have been very popular for a very long time. The different contraceptives in this category include condoms, diaphragms and cervical caps. Condoms offer plenty of advantages, but the biggest one is that they prevent sexually transmitted diseases and not just pregnancy. However, the problem with condoms is that many men do not like wearing them. In addition, they might not always be handy. This can create a huge problem since you might end up having sex without protection. Even if they are easily available, they require one to interrupt lovemaking long enough to get one on. Many people, men in particular, find this to be very irksome and some of them refuse to use protection because of this reason. Condoms are also known to tear and many people damage them by using them along with oil based lubricants.

Condoms are a good idea if you are not in a sexually committed or exclusive relationship because you will definitely want to watch out for STDs. If you are in a stable and sexually exclusive relationship then you can think of different contraceptives. You do not need to think beyond avoiding pregnancy. Hormonal contraceptives will serve you very well in this instance. There are many options you can choose from, starting from the trusty contraceptive pill and including the latest contraceptive implants and patches.

These hormonal different contraceptives are very convenient to use. In fact, the implants and patches are far easier to use than pills because you do not even have to remember to take them on a daily basis like pills. They also give you complete control over birth control. These contraceptives might have certain side effects such as excessive bleeding, irregular periods as well as weight gain but these side effects tend to disappear after a while. The effect is reversible and all you have to do to get pregnant is to use one.

You will get hormonal contraceptive implants only from a doctor who has to verify whether your health is perfectly fine and whether you will do not have any medical condition that will get worsened because of the hormone treatment. In addition, there are certain medications you might be on that will decrease the effectiveness of these hormone based contraceptives.

You need to make your choice amongst the different contraceptives available based upon your sexual habits. You should have a talk with your doctor in order to understand which type will work best for you and indeed, whether you can use certain types at all.
