Female Contraception Alternatives
Dr Judelman also offers 'Female Contraception' as an alternative option.
Procedures such as insertion and removal of Implanon and Mirena IUCDs [intra-uterine contraceptive devices] can be performed with minimal risk.
Choosing the correct method of contraception
Female contraception versus male vasectomy.
When choosing the correct method of contraception that is right for you, it is important to have accurate information. Talk openly about your options with your partner.
It is also important to think about how well each method works, the possible side effects. Ease of use and how much it costs.
The method you choose will depend on a range of factors.
Such as your general health, lifestyle and relationships, your risk of getting a sexually transmissible infection (STI) and how important it is for you not to get pregnant.
Some methods require more effort than others. You will need to think about which option best suits you.
For examples of female contraception, if you choose oral contraception, you will need to remember to take a pill every day. Whereas if you choose the contraceptive implant, it can last for up to three years. It is important to weigh the pros and cons and think about how each method meets your current and future needs.
For a male a vasectomy is the safest, most convenient and better form of contraception
