What are the chances of a pregnancy if my current method of birth control is not used or fails? Should my partner and I consider using 2 forms of birth control (such as a male condom and birth control pills) at the same time?
Each birth control method has a failure rate. Even the permanent forms of sterilization, tubal ligation and vasectomy, are not 100% effective. Understand your risks for pregnancy before you have sexual relations. Combine methods to further lower your risk.
