Contraceptives-Birth Control

Birth control, also well-known as contraception and fertility control, is a method used to avoid pregnancy. Birth control systems have been used since ancient times, but actual and safe methods only became available in the 20th century.  The most effective systems of birth control are sterilization by means of vasectomy in males and tubal ligation in females ,intrauterine devices (IUDs), and implantable delivery control. This is tracked by a number of hormone based methods including oral pills, covers, vaginal rings, and injections. Less operative methods include physical barriers such as condoms, diaphragms and labour control sponges and fertility awareness methods. The least operative methods are spermicides and removal by the male before ejaculation. Sterilization, while highly operative, is not usually reversible; all other methods are reversible, most proximately upon stopping them. Safe sex performs, such as with the use of male or female condoms, can also help avoid sexually transmitted toxicities. Other methods of birth control do not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Emergency labour control can prevent pregnancy if taken within the 72 to 120 hours after unprotected sex. Some maintain not having sex as a form of birth control, but abstinence-only sex education may rise adolescent pregnancies if accessible without birth control training, due to nonconformity.
