Birth control is a very personal choice for women.

Birth control is only required during the reproductive years of a woman, to prevent an accidental or unwanted pregnancy.

Some types of birth control also prevent HIV and other sexually transmissible infections, while other types of birth control are simply just that, as a way of avoiding getting pregnant.

It is advisable to have a new partner wear a condom, no matter what other type of birth control is also being used. This is to ensure that HIV and other sexually transmissible infections will not be spread from person to person.

This part of the site looks at every aspect of birth control.
