Methods of Contraception
barrier methods1
All barrier methods prevent sperm from entering the vagina and/or the cervix.


Can break or come off during intercourse; can expire; can cause allergic reactions.

Barrier Methods
hormonal methods
Birth Control Pill/ Patch: The Pill contains hormones similar to the natural hormones in a woman’s body. The hormones in the pill stop the release of an egg from the ovaries. No egg = no pregnancy.

Depo Provera (shot): a hormone that is injected into a female’s arm or buttock every 12 weeks. The hormone stops the release of an egg and makes the cervical mucous thicker so that sperm cannot enter the uterus.

Hormonal Methods

Hormonal Methods

Spermicidal methods prevent pregnancy by using chemicals to kill sperm on contact.

Spermicide (Nonoxynol-9)

Contraceptive Foam: A product that comes in a can and has an applicator to put the foam into the vagina.

Contraceptive Jelly: A product that comes in a tube and is usually used with a diaphragm or cervical cap.

Vaginal Contraceptive Film: A very thin transparent square of film that dissolves quickly and releases nonoxynol-9.

Sponge: (also a barrier method) A piece of soft foam that covers the cervix filled with three kinds of spermicides.

Condom lubricated with spermicide.

Spermicidal Methods

Spermicidal products containing Nonoxynol-9 may cause skin/mucosal irritation/itchiness. This irritation may increase the risk for STI and HIV.
