It can be pretty strenuous trying to find the proper birth control for you. What works for some women doesn't work for all.
There are different forms of birth control you can choose from, and each of them works differently and has different side effects. Consider meeting with the best gynecologists at Roswell OBGYN to find the proper birth control.
There are five different kinds of birth control methods. Each method functions differently, such as blocking sperm from reaching an egg or inhibiting your body from producing eggs. Only condoms can protect against sexually transmitted infections or STIs. If STI prevention is essential to you, use condoms along with another form of birth control.
Hormonal birth control includes regulating your body’s natural estrogen and progestin levels to reduce the likelihood of pregnancy. They are around 91 percent to 95 percent effective in preventing pregnancy in most women. Some women report a reduction in period discomfort, frequency, or flow when using hormonal birth control.
Long-term contraception might be an excellent option if you want practical, long-term birth control that doesn’t require much upkeep. Implants or IUDs are excellent choices because they do not require any additional effort on your side. However, some people develop a few short-term or (less frequently) long-term adverse effects.
Barrier birth control methods include condoms, sponges, diaphragms, cervical caps, and spermicide. During intercourse, they establish a sperm “barrier” that blocks sperm from reaching an egg physically. Barrier contraceptive techniques do not require a prescription and may be purchased over the counter or online.
Tubal ligation for women and vasectomy for men are very straightforward surgical techniques used to prevent conception. If you’re sure you don’t want to have children in the future, they’re nearly 100% effective for preventing birth. It is possible to reverse a tubal ligation or vasectomy, but there is no assurance that your fertility will recover.
If you have sex without taking birth control or your birth control fails, emergency contraception can help you avoid becoming pregnant. Remember that emergency contraception IS NOT intended to be your primary form of birth control but rather a backup.

Is it possible to become pregnant after having anal sex?
Although it is highly uncommon, anal sex can result in pregnancy. Sperm can go from the anus to the vagina. This might be due to ejaculation near the vagina.

I’m a nursing mother. Does this imply I won’t be able to conceive?
Although your odds are reduced, you can still become pregnant while breastfeeding. Breastfeeding causes an increase in the amount of a hormone that inhibits ovulation.

Showering or cleaning your vagina with water or other fluids is ineffective as a form of contraception since sperm moves rapidly.
