With regards to contraceptive methods, there are several common & recommended types of contraceptive pills with different indications and ways of consumption. Hence I would advise you to see a doctor for the best treatment method for you to commit (with respect to its effectiveness and body’s response to it). In addition, there are also various other methods of providing family planning such as IUCD & contraceptive injections.
Furthermore, male condoms are found to be 95% effective in preventing unplanned pregnancies and are the best short term choice while waiting for the contraceptive method recommended by your doctor.
At the moment, for women who have frequent sexual intercourse, it is advisable to take contraceptives such as IUCD or hormone contraceptive injections other than birth control pills to prevent pregnancy in the long term.
With that being said we encourage you to consult with the nearest clinic or hospital in your area. In addition you can also talk directly to our doctors by using this link. (DoctorOnCall) Thank you.
