If you're having sex and don't want to get pregnant it's
important to choose the right contraception for you. There are lots
of methods to choose from, some are pills that are taken every day
and some are longer acting such as the implant, the injection and
the coil, which is fitted just inside the womb. Each method of
contraception has some advantages and disadvantages so it's helpful
to find out about all your options so that you can make the best
choice. When contraception doesn't fit with a woman's
lifestyle it might not be used properly, which can increase the
risk of unplanned pregnancy.
