Various methods of contraception may be employed to prevent pregnancy, by both men and women. No contraception is 100% safe except abstinence. It is important to note that certain contraceptive methods do not necessarily provide protection against SAIs.

You should consult with your doctor to decide on which contraceptive method best suits your needs.

All methods of contraception can be classified into four main types. These are:

1. Natural family planning methods

2. Barrier methods

3. Hormonal methods

4. Surgical methods
