Which methods of contraception are there?

Dr Louisa Draper

"If you don’t want to get pregnant, you should use contraception every time you have sex. Condoms are the best way to avoid catching a sexually transmitted infection (an STI). "

Dr Louisa Draper

There are so many different types of contraceptives to choose from, it can be tricky to work out which method is the best one for you. With barrier methods, implants, intrauterine devices and contraceptive pills to choose from, it is now so much easier to prevent pregnancy than it used to be.

Our guide to contraception explains the most popular contraceptives to help you to choose the right one for you, based on your own personal preferences and how often you have sex.
