Women's Health As part of the gynecological exam, your provider will counsel you on birth control methods. Because there is no one perfect method, your choice should be based on your priorities. Some characteristics to consider are:

  • Effectiveness to prevent pregnancy
  • Beneficial side effects
  • Adverse side effects
  • Cost
  • Convenience
  • Ease of use
  • Infrequent sex
  • Personal routine
  • Same sex partner
  • STD/HIV prevention

Your provider will help you decide which method is right for you. The costs are approximate and may vary from pharmacy to pharmacy.
