Many birth control methods are available, including pills, implants, injections, patches, and natural family planning practices (abstinence, fertility tracking, etc…). The effectiveness of each method can vary and some may not be right in certain circumstances. All help to prevent conception, but with so many options out there, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you.
Of the many different forms of birth control available, the intrauterine device (IUD) is one of the most effective, with a 99% success rate. An IUD can be in place for several years and be effective; but also can be easily removed without affecting your ability to get pregnant.
