Question:

What are the different methods of contraception?

Answer:

The following are the different methods of contraception :

  • Physical devices such as condoms, diaphragms, and cervical caps are used.
  • This method involves tablets or drugs which have to be taken orally. These contain small doses of hormones that prevent the discharge of eggs and thus fertilization cannot occur.
  • Contraceptive devices such as loop or Copper-T are placed within the uterus to prevent pregnancy.
  • In the surgical method, the fallopian tubes are blocked in females to stop the flow of eggs, and vas deferens are blocked in men to stop the flow of sperm.
  • Self-control is also a solution.
