Birth Control

The purpose of birth control is to allow a woman to enjoy a full range of sexual expression without worrying about becoming pregnant. Each person is unique. No one method is best for everyone. Women choose different methods for different stages in life.  You can use Birth Control to prevent pregnancy, to determine the number and spacing of births, to never get pregnant, to decide when you want to have your period, or for other health reasons.

Visit our Birth Control Comparison site for more information and to use an online tool to compare the various methods.
