In the world in which we live in today, it's definitely best to be safe than sorry. In life, one should be cautious with almost everything you do. How you drive, who you call your friends, who you date and most importantly--how you treat your body.
But how many people actually do? When it comes to your sex life, what's your go-to form of contraception, if any at all?
As you should've been taught in high school, there are many ways to protect yourself when it comes to sex and the things that may accompany it. With the many choices of contraceptions we have, there should really be no excuse. Right?
I'll give you the Top 5 Best Forms of Contraception
, according to Planned Parenthood
- Abstinence- The ONLY form that is 100% effective.
- Condoms- The least expensive and easiest to obtain. Out of 100 women, 15 become pregnant with use.
- Birth Control (Pill, Patch, Ring Combo)- USUALLY these effective reversible methods of birth control protect 92 of 100 women from becoming pregnant with typical use.
- Progestin (Only Pills)
- Depo Provera Shot ("the shot")- There is no need to remember a daily pill. The shot is one of the most effective types of reversible contraception, with only three out of every 1,000 women getting pregnant with correct use.
Of course there are more preventive ways and some not-so-preventive. Like the "pull-out" method, that has had more people heading to the 24-hour pharmacy, than to the shower. Then, there are those that just have to look at other children and vow to wear a condom for life.But which one is more suitable to you and your partner's liking? Do you prefer to feel the pleasure of no barrier? Or the mental calm of being more safe than sorry?Image Source
