Contraception is a way to prevent pregnancy. Although different contraception methods work in different ways, contraception generally prevents sperm and egg from meeting which is how a pregnancy starts.
Many elements need to be considered by women, men, or couples at any given point in their lifetimes when choosing the most appropriate contraceptive method.
Hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) (Mirena)
The device is a T-shaped plastic frame that’s inserted into the uterus, where it releases a type of the hormone progestin that can provide long-term birth control (contraception).
Copper T intrauterine device (IUD)
This IUD is a small device that is shaped in the form of a “T.” Your doctor places it inside the uterus to prevent pregnancy
Combined oral contraceptives
Also called “the pill,” combined oral contraceptives contain the hormones estrogen and progestin. It is prescribed by a doctor. A pill is taken at the same time each day. f you are older than 35 years and smoke, have a history of blood clots or breast cancer, your doctor may advise you not to take the pill
Progestin only pill
Unlike the combined pill, the progestin-only pill (sometimes called the mini-pill) only has one hormone, progestin, instead of both estrogen and progestin. It is prescribed by a doctor. It is taken at the same time each day. It may be a good option for women who can’t take estrogen.
If I plan to have a baby, how soon after stopping birth control pills can I conceive?
Usually ovulation begins again a few weeks after stopping birth control pills.
As soon as you ovulate again, you can get pregnant. If this happens during your first cycle off the pill, you may not have a period at all. Take a pregnancy test if you’ve had unprotected sex and your period hasn’t returned.
What happens if I stop taking the birth control pill and my period doesn't come back?
If you don’t have a period within three months, take a pregnancy test to make sure you’re not pregnant and then see your doctor.
What’s the difference between hormonal and non-hormonal IUDs?
There are a few differences between hormonal IUDs and non-hormonal, or “copper” IUDs. The biggest difference is in the way they work. As their name suggests, hormonal IUDs, like Mirena works by releasing a small but constant amount of hormone into the uterus. This prevents pregnancy by thickening the cervical mucus so sperm can’t get in. Hormonal IUDs can also prevent you from ovulating or releasing an egg from your uterus, which means there’s nothing for the sperm to fertilize if it does get in.
Non-hormonal IUDs, also called copper IUDs is safe for your uterus but toxic to sperm, they don’t get far enough to fertilize an egg.
