What is Contraception

Contraception is a method, medication or device used to prevent pregnancy. It is also called birth control or family planning.

It also helps in preventing sexually transmitted diseases.

What Are Different Types of Contraceptive Methods ?

Barrier method:
Various barrier methods are available for males and females; they are:

  • Male condoms
  • Female condoms
  • Diaphragms
  • Cervical caps
  • Contraceptive sponges
  • Spermicide

Hormonal method:
This method involves the use of contraceptive pills. Usually, the following are used for the hormonal method of birth control:

  • Progestin-estrogen combination
  • progestin alone pills
  • IUDs like copper-T

The contraceptive pills work by suppressing ovulation, thickening the cervical mucosa, and preventing the entry of sperm into fallopian tubes, thereby preventing fertilization of eggs.

Natural birth control:

  • Coitus interruptus: It is a natural birth control method in which the man has to withdraw his penis from the vagina completely before ejaculation.
  • Calendar rhythm: In this, the couple can avoid performing sex during fertile days. (usually 14th day of the menstrual cycle is considered as the most fertile day)


  • Tubectomy- The fallopian tubes of women are cut and ligated.
  • Vasectomy- In this method, the tubes carrying sperms in men are cut and ligated. 

Emergency Contraceptive :

This method uses a pill, usually called a “morning-after pill.” This pill should be taken within 72 hours after unprotected intercourse.
