Best birth control and safest.

Patient: What’s the best type of birth control, I’m 18 and help deciding?




Doctor: Hello,At your age group, if you plan to defer pregnancy plans by next 3 years or so , then the best form of contracep tion for you would be hormonal progesterone implant like…IMPLANON. This has to be inserted sub dermal , under the skin and prevents ovulation for 3 years protecting from pregnancy . It doesn’t offer any protection to STDs and hence barrier protection may be practiced as and when neededI hope i have answered your query in detail,wishing you good health,regards
