Birth Control FAQs (cont.)

What type of birth control is best for me? Does my situation in life affect my choice of birth control?

Your choice of birth control method involves factors such as how easy it is to use, safety, risks, cost, and personal considerations. Each form of birth control has its own advantages and disadvantages.

If you are a woman and would have trouble remembering to take a pill each day, daily birth control pills may not be your best choice. Talk with your health care provider about the method that is right for you.
