Birth Control

There are many forms of birth control, and Planned Parenthood Ottawa can help find the right one for you. Another word for it is contraception. Contraception can be divided into six main categories.

Cheap: These are relatively cheap, or inexpensive over long time use.

Non-Hormonal: These do not contain hormones.

Most Effective: These have an effectiveness rate of 90% or higher.

Easy to Hide: These are easy to hide from the people in your life, including your sexual partner.

Prevents STI’s: These forms of birth control also reduce your risk of STI’s.

No Prescription Required: You can often get these over the counter at a pharmacy where you don’t have to talk to a medical provider.

Emergency Birth Control: Whether your birth control failed you, or no form of contraception was used, if you want to avoid pregnancy, these might be some options for you.
