No I Do Not Want to Become Pregnant

Sexually active women who aren’t using birth control have an 85% chance of getting pregnant. If you don’t want to have a baby within the next year, talk with your doctor about finding the best birth control method for you. Choices include:
  • Long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), such as IUDs and implants
  • Birth control pills
  • Emergency contraceptive pills
  • Tubal ligation
