Welcome to AfraidToAsk.com’s Contraception & Birth Control Guide. This guide has been developed to help you learn about common contraceptive methods and to make informed decisions about your health and life. Though this guide is a good start, we strongly recommend you call your own doctor or a local family planning clinic to take the next step in learning more about correct contraceptive use.
The probability of pregnancy after a single act of intercourse is calculated to be 15% if it occurs once a week and increases to 33% if it occurs every other day. Each year 3.2 million unplanned pregnancies occur as a result of no use, misuse, or malfunction of contraceptive methods. This often poses great emotional and financial distress to the people involved, including the parents (whether wed or unwed), the unplanned child, and sometimes even society as a whole. This makes contraception and its methods a topic that must be addressed. Our goal here is to give you a easy-to-understand, yet thorough, guide to preventing unwanted pregnancies. This guide will address the family planning concept and how contraceptives actually work in preventing pregnancy. One of the best resources for learning about contraceptive choices and getting a contraceptive is your primary care physician.Another note, though this guide is focused as a contraceptive guide for heterosexual vaginal sexual intercourse, the sexually transmitted disease (STD) portions of this guide is applicable to all sexual acts, including vaginal, oral, and anal intercourse. Whether participants are heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexua, sexually transmitted diseases do not discriminate.
