15 Fertile Facts About Birth Control

The Most Effective Birth Control Options 1 of 16

The most effective forms of birth control -- aside from abstaining from sex altogether, which is 100% effective -- with less than one pregnancy per 100 women each year are:

  • Vasectomy
  • Female sterilization
  • IUD (Intrauterine Device)
  • Implant

It's important to note that these numbers are only accurate for those who use the method correctly. These forms of birth control are more long-term and are less likely to be used incorrectly, but others, such as condoms, must be used correctly every time in order to be effective.
