  4. Contraception Defined… Prevention of conception or pregnancy

  5. Methods of Birth Control • Abstinence • Withdrawal • Condoms • Diaphragm • Spermicides • Norplant • Birth Control Pill • Birth Control Patch (Evra) • Depo-Provera • NuvaRing • IUDs • EmergencyContraception

  6. Abstinence/Postponing Intercourse • Means not having vaginal or anal intercourse. • Only 100% effective method of birth control. • Need to know your limits and communicate them to your partner.

  7. Withdrawal • It is often referred to as the Pull out Method of Birth Control. • It is when the male removes his penis from the female’s vagina before ejaculation occurs. • Over the course of 1 year, about 27 out of 100 typical couples who rely on withdrawal to prevent pregnancy will have an accidental pregnancy. • Ineffective because males will pre-ejaculate before full ejaculation occurs.

  8. Condoms

  9. Condoms • Prevents semen from entering the vagina • Effectiveness ~ 88% without spermicide ~ 97% with spermicide • No prescription needed • Readily available • Relatively easy to use • Protects from pregnancy and some STIs

  10. Condoms • If you buy the right size, it shouldn’t be uncomfortable. • The real problem is about embarrassment; but would you rather be embarrassed because you have to purchase condoms, or because you have a nasty rash, warts or you don’t want to seem “uncool.” • Having a baby or an STI will affect you for the rest of your life. Think about that before you engage in unprotected sex.

  11. Female Condoms A female condom is a thin polyurethane pouch with a flexible ring at each end. You put the closed end of the condom into your vagina and the inside ring holds it in place. The ring at the open end of the condom rests on the vulva outside of your vagina.

  12. The female condom stops sperm from entering your vagina • Used the right way and every time 95% effective • Not used the right way every time 79% effective • No prescription needed • Protects from pregnancy and some • Sexually Transmitted Infections • Can be tricky putting in, practice and follow instructions on package • Approx.3$ a condom

  13. Diaphragm

  14. Diaphram • A diaphragm is a shallow dome-shaped cap of latexwith a flexible rim. • It is filled with spermicide and covers the entry to the cervix. • It can be inserted hours before intercourse. • Neither partner can feel the diaphragm. • Must be fitted by a doctor or in a clinic. • It must be left in 6 hours after intercourse. • In one year, there is a 20% rate of failure.

  15. Diaphram

  16. Spermicides • Chemicals that kill sperm. • They come in many forms such as foams, jellies, gels and suppositories. • Spermicides are messy and may cause burning and irritation for both the male and female. • Only effective for one hour, thus it must be inserted right before intercourse. • Spermicides have a 20-30% failure rate. • Can be purchased at any drug store.

  17. Spermicides

  18. Hormonal Contraceptives • There are two main types of hormonal contraceptive formulations: combined methods which contain both an estrogen and a progestin, and progestogen -only methods.

  19. Ovulation Ovulation is when one or more eggs are released from one of your ovaries. This happens toward the end of the time you're fertile between periods. Each month, eggs mature inside your ovaries. The ripest egg is released and swept into one of your fallopian tubes. Your fallopian tubes connect your ovaries to your uterus (womb). Your ovaries do not necessarily take turns releasing an egg. It can happen quite randomly.

  20. Oral Contraceptives • Better known as “the pill” • Contains estrogen and progesterone • Prevents ovulation • Thickens cervical mucus to block sperm • Over 99% effective if used properly • Must be taken within the same 2 hour time period every day • Need a prescription

  21. Myths and Facts about the Pill Myth: The pill can cause Acne Fact: Some oral contraceptives even reduce acne Myth: If you miss more than one pill you can just double or triple the pill when you remember. Fact: If you miss one pill during a cycle, a double dose must be taken the next day. If another pill is missed, the method is then deemed ineffective and another birth control method must be used (ex. Condom).

  22. Myth: Women who take the pill should have periodic pill breaks. • Fact: Once your system is used to the pill you should keep on taking it to avoid irregular cycles as well as pregnancy. After 10 years of taking the pill, talk to your doctor about other methods. • Myth: The pill causes weight gain. • Fact: The estrogen may cause women to feel bloated in the beginning, but this side effect will stop over time.

  23. Birth Control Patch (Evra) • Hormonal patch worn on skin • Same action as oral contraceptives • 99% effective if used properly • Changed same day every week for 3 consecutive weeks. • Week 4 is patch free

  24. Depo-Provera • An injection given every 12 weeks • Contains progesterone only • Same action as birth control pills • Over 99% effective if given every 10-13 weeks • Lighter periods or no periods at all • Not recommended for adolescents

  25. Depo-Provera

  26. NuvaRing • This ring is placed in the vagina for 3 weeks where it releases a continuous low dose of hormones. • Contains 2 types of hormones: estrogen and progestin, which work together to prevent the ovaries from producing mature eggs. • Week 4 is ring-free and you will start your menstrual period • Same hormones, action and effectiveness as birth control pills and patch.


  28. IUD - video • Inserted into the vagina by a physician. • Cost is $60-$1000, depending on the device is available to you.. • Provides up to 5 years of pregnancy protection. Newer devices can last much longer. • Good for those people looking for a long term method of birth control, but not recommended for adolescents. • Only 1 out of 100 people will become pregnant. • May cause irregular vaginal bleeding in some people.
