The number of birth control choices is growing. If you are sexually active, daily pills, monthly injections, vaginal rings, and intrauterine devices are all choices for preventing pregnancy nowadays. If you are or may become sexually active, talk to your doctor about your birth control alternatives. Discuss your lifestyle changes with your doctor at each yearly check-up and decide if your birth control method is still the best option for you. Work with your doctor to discover a birth control choice that works better if your birth control is creating unpleasant side effects (such as dizziness or diminished sex drive).
