Contraception and Birth Control FAQ
Please check out our favorite website: www.bedsider.org There you can learn about all of the options available and the “pros and cons” of each option. They also have patient interviews you can watch so you can hear directly from other patients about what options other people do and do not like and why they do and do not like them. We want you to make as informed of a decision as possible and reviewing this website can help you do so.
Does birth control prevent Sexually Transmitted Infections?
Most do not. Some STDs are spread by skin-to-skin contact and others are spread by contact with infected bodily fluids. Most forms of birth control do not prevent this kind of contact and so condoms should be used regardless of birth control method to prevent exposure to Sexually Transmitted Infections.
