This is a hormonal contraceptive and its shots are given once in three months. You can either take the Depo shots on your arm on in your buttock based on your convenience. The contraceptive works by releasing a hormone called progestin. This hormone avoids the release of the eggs from the ovaries. Alongside, it works to prevent the swimming of the sperm towards the egg. Because of its dual action, it is very effective. However, you should not take these shots for more than two years at a stretch. If you do so, you will have to suffer with lower bone density. Thus, you will be prone to osteoporosis and fractures later on in life. Be careful!

Birth control pills

These are a very common type of contraceptives, also known simply as The Pill. Different pills work in different ways. There are commonly three methods. One is the prevention of the release of eggs from the ovaries, the other is thickening the cervical mucus, and the last is rendering the uterine lining thin so that the egg does not implant. These pills should be taken daily.


Condoms are known as barrier contraceptives. Many people think that only men can use condoms but there are female condoms too. The male condoms are, however, more popular. These condoms are made out of lambskin, polyurethane, or latex. It is important that you store the condoms in a right place. The wallet is not the right place because it is a hot area and the latex can break down. As a result, the condom will break when you are having intercourse and the whole purpose of using the condom will be lost. Always store it in a cooler area. For women, the condom works as a barrier in the vagina. You should wear it inside it. The female condom covers the vaginal canal, the cervix, and the surrounding areas of the vagina. The female condom is made out of manmade rubber, which is highly flexible.


This is another contraceptive, which works as a barrier. Women use it. The diaphragm is a device that the woman is supposed to insert in her vagina prior to having sex. You should not insert it many hours before sex. In fact, it should be inserted only a couple of hours before as opposed to the female condom that can be inserted even eight hours before intercourse. The diaphragm is a rubber dome. It is soft and consists of cream or jelly that has spermicidal properties.
