1 Birth Control Methods

2 Abstinence NOT participating in sexual activity of any kind – remember, STD’s can still be transmitted through Oral and Anal sex and skin to skin contact. 100% Effective against pregnancy 100% Effective against STD transmission

3 How Birth Control Methods Work?
Hormonal Methods – contain estrogen and/or progesterone. Prevent ovulation (release of egg) May also, thicken mucus around the cervix, making it difficult for sperm to pass through May also, change lining of uterus, making it difficult for fertilizedegg to attach All require a doctor visit and prescription Some are costly Need to be used correctly Most are impacted by other medications – such as antibiotics

4 How Birth Control Methods Work?
Barrier Methods Work by creating a physical barrier between sperm and egg cells so that fertilization cannot occur.

5 Hormonal Methods The Pill – taken daily
The Ring – must be changed every 3-4 weeks The Patch – must be changed every 3-4 weeks The Shot - Injection of Progestin that is given every 3 months by a doctor Implant – surgically implanted into woman’s arm – lasts up to 3 years IUD- (Intrauterine Device) doctor inserts into a woman's uterus. Stays in for up to 5 years

6 Male Barrier Method A male condom is a thin sheath (usually made of latex, a type of rubber) that is worn on the penis. Works by keeping semen from entering the vagina. The male condom is placed on a guy's penis when it becomes erect. Condoms may break, be expired, not used correctly, not used regularly Provides some protection against STD transmission “safer” sex NOT safe sex-NOT 100%

7 Female Barrier Methods
Diaphram- Domed shaped rubber disk. Covers cervix so sperm can’t reach uterus. Vaginal Sponge-A soft saucer-shaped sponge that blocks the cervix and absorbs semen-stays in 6-8 hours after intercourse Cervical Cap-Soft rubber cap, fits snugly around the cervix. Used with spermicide. Protects for 48 hours.

8 Emergency Contraception
Emergency Contraceptive Pills (ECP), The Morning-After "Pill," (Plan B, Next Choice, Ella) PREVENTS Ovulation OR DELAYS Ovulation Used AFTER intercourse Effective up to 5 days – but MOST effective when taken CLOSEST to intercourse. In WA State – can purchase EC over the counter if over 17. If under 17 need a prescription to purchase. IF FERTILIZATION HAS OCCURED – NOTHING HAPPENS. (EC gets confused with “Abortion Pill” which is a totally different medication) No Protection against STD transmission

9 Withdrawal “pulling out”
Withdrawling the penis before ejaculation occurs inside of the vagina No Protection against STD transmission Not recommended as a form of birth control
