Birth Control Basics

Birth control (or contraception) is any regimen or medicine used to prevent pregnancy.

However, more research is being done to expand options for those with external reproductive anatomy.

Birth Control Options - Medication and Long-acting Reversible Contraception

There’s a plethora of birth control options to choose from when it comes to medication and LARCs. What is available in these categories differs based on whether they contain hormones, how often they must be taken or renewed, and their effectiveness rate. Hormonal options might contain estrogen, progestin (a form of progesterone), or a combination of the two. Estrogen prevents an egg from leaving the ovaries during ovulation. Progestin can also prevent ovulation and thickens the mucus in the cervix to prevent sperm from reaching the egg. However, it’s important to recognize that medications and LARCs do not prevent STIs.
