How Birth Control Works

There are a lot of different birth control methods. Some have hormones, others don't. Some work by keeping the sperm from reaching the egg, while others stop women's bodies from releasing an egg every month. What all of them have in common is that that they work to prevent pregnancy. 

Whichever method UChoose, remember, condoms are the only birth control method that protect from STIs.

Know Your Body
