Family Planning Strategies
The only time I've had sex without contraception was between a condom coming off and taking the morning after pill (this seemed like a good idea but stressed me out later). Here are my experiences using or considering different methods of birth control. Keep in mind that there are many options that I haven't included (yet).
- Not yet discussed here: female condoms, cervical caps, diaphragms, sponges, foam, gel...
- Birth control pills
- Depo Provera (3 month shots)
- Not yet discussed here: Mini-pills (progestin only), Lunelle (1 month shots), Norplant (implants), NuvaRing (1 month vaginal ring), the patch...
Also not yet discussed here: IUDs, behavioural methods (fertility awareness, withdrawal, abstinence), surgical sterilization, herbals.
For detailed fact sheets about how to choose and use birth control, Planned Parenthood is excellent.
For more detail about contraception and safer sex, I found the book Sex Sense up to date, easy to read, and reliable.
For information to fuel my fantasies about potential new methods of male-controlled contraception, I like malecontraceptives.org.
And please remember that most contraceptives don't protect against infection. For that you need male or female condoms.
