Modern Day Contraception
Do you want to take hormones? Do you want a contraceptive device inside your body? These are questions that will steer you as you select your contraceptive methods.

American Academy of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) can help you find a sexual educator to discuss the right contraceptive for you. Sitting down with a sexual educator to discuss your personal needs is your best option.

For those who want hormones, there are implants and hormonal rings. If you want hormones but no implanted device, there are patches and pills.

Forty-five percent of pregnancies are unplanned. Some of these pregnancies are from lack of birth control. Some come from lack of education on birth control. Others are from failure to use properly.

You are responsible for your life. This means taking your contraception into your own hands.

Sex and relationship educator Kait Scalisi shares the basics of modern contraception.
