Where Can I Find Out More About Family Planning?
Consider Your Regular Contraception Plan
Next Choice One Dose™ is NOT a regular birth control method. It should only be used infrequently, when regular contraception fails or after a sexual encounter without contraceptive protection. Regular methods to prevent pregnancy work best. According to a study of 7,356 women interviewed from 2006-2008, nearly all (99%) have used some form of regular contraception:
- 93% used male condoms
- 82% used birth control pills
- 22% used the Depo-Provera® shot
- 10% used the patch
If used correctly, these contraceptive methods are effective at protecting you from unintended pregnancy.
If you are sexually active, using condoms can provide even more protection. In addition to preventing pregnancy, condoms can help protect you from STDs.
