Contraception aims to prevent pregnancy. It is an important factor of sexual health and is one of the main considerations if having sexual intercourse. Deciding when or if to have children is an important decision not to be taken lightly. Some women use contraception for health reasons e.g. to help periods, PMS etc.
When deciding on what method of contraception to use there are many factors such as health, lifestyle, culture and age that may influence which contraception will suit you best. This may change with time. In addition new forms of contraception are emerging all the time. All types of contraception are free.
