CONTRACEPTIVE METHODS

Choosing your method of contraception highly depends on your personal life circumstances and an individual evaluation of pros and cons.

The pill

The birth control pill works by stopping sperm from joining with an egg. The hormones in the pill stop ovulation. No ovulation means there’s no egg hanging around for sperm to fertilize, so pregnancy can’t happen.

Contraceptive implant

A contraceptive implant is a 4cm long and 2mm thin soft plastic rod. Contraceptive implants are inhibits ovulation for three years.

Contraceptive vaginal ring

The contraceptive vaginal ring is a small, flexible, plastic ring with 54mm outside diameter and 4mm thickness, that is inserted in the vagina. The ring contains the same hormones (progestin and estrogen) found in most birth control pills and inhibits ovulation.

Intrauterine Device (IUD)

Intrauterine device (IUD) is a small, flexible plastic frame, surrounded from a small hormone cylinder by which a small amount of a progestin is constantly released into the uterus. This leads to a thickening of the mucus in the cervix, which hinders the sperm to rise. The growth of the mucous membrane of the uterus is suppressed, which reduces or completely stops bleeding.

Copper coil

The copper coil (or IUD) is made of plastic and copper. It's put into the womb during menstruation and lasts 3 to 5 years. The copper stops the sperm and egg from surviving inside the womb and fallopian tubes, so sperm cannot fertilise an egg.
