The Most Effective Methods For Birth Control

Aug 30, 2008
Today in the world market there are many types of birth control product available. There are pills and injections but to go further there are also surgeries that can be done to prevent it totally from happening. But no form of method of birth control is 100 percent successful. Birth control is of 2 types namely reversible and irreversible.

The most effective form of birth control:
Abstinence is the most effective form of birth control. The other very much effective form of birth control is an intra-uterine device (IUD), closely followed by hormonal birth control, which can come in the form of a pill, patch, implant, or insertable ring.

The IDU have the best success rate amongst all other measures. In order for any form of birth control to be effective, it must be used exactly as directed; if one fails to follow directions, it will result in a higher risk of pregnancy. Surgical methods of birth control are actually more effective than hormonal birth control or IUDs, although they are only reversed with extreme difficulty, and most of the times not at all.

For women and men looking for a permanent form of highly effective birth control, a surgical method is the best choice. The failure rates for tubal ligations and vasectomies are extremely low, usually less than one percent if the surgery is performed correctly. When it comes to hormonal birth control, the birth control shot is the most effective form of birth control.

However, the shot is currently not recommended for long term use, as it may lead to calcium deficiencies. Several pharmaceutical companies are working on improved, long-term forms of the shot, but for patients seeking healthier long-term hormonal options, the birth control patch and insertable ring are both good choices, with failure rates of between one and two percent, assuming that they are used correctly.

Studies on the patch have also suggested that it should not be used by women over 198 pounds (86 kilograms). The pill, a common form of hormonal birth control, has a two percent failure rate, assuming that the pills are taken daily, and at the same time every day.

Other effective methods
The failure rates of birth control methods vary from method to method, but are usually around 17%. The failure rate declines if a diaphragm is used with spermicide, although spermicide alone is not a reliable method.

Some spermicides have a failure rate as high as 50%, while others range around 20%. Condoms have an 11% failure rate, mostly related to improper use and breakage rather than poor manufacture, although they are the only form of birth control which also prevents sexually transmitted infections.
