Superb Opinion
  • All birth control is only as effective as your use of it. That said here is a list of common birth control ranked from most effective to least effective.

    Abstinence
    Birth control pill
    Tubes tied/vasectomy
    Condom
    Calendar method
    Pull out method

    I didn't list IUDs because they are newer and I don't know the numbers around them. But they are probably between condoms and the birth control pill. I also didn't list non vaginal sex. Which by itself is as effective as abstinence; however, in my experience, most of the time it ends up with vaginal sex.

Most Helpful Guy

  • Most of the birth control methods have certain risks and uncommon but possible side effects, and some types of birth control may be contraindicated for a woman based on her medical history. so there is not one single method that is best for every woman (or every man.) What is best for you or your partner should be determined by a couple in collaboration with their physician.

Most Helpful Girls

  • I've never taken birth control before, but one of my friends has a contraceptive implant (it goes in your arm). She told me that it's 99% effective. I think each time you get it you have to switch arms, but you will be sore for a few days afterwards.

  • By keeping it in your pants for guys, and their legs together for girls. This is almost foolproof as only the fools can mess it up.

    When he said he wanted a big spread for dinner I thought he meant my legs.

  • oral sex as you can't get pregnant from giving that... also it does fulfill every emotional need by giving them

    • @chrissykerdock mind dming? I need some advice :)

    • Great answer and a go-to for me.

  • Swallow or buttstuff

  • Not having sex.

  • IUD is the most foolproof and lowest maintenance.

    • Is extremely uncomfortable, and it can go wrong, maybe

  • Technically the most reliable is to not have sex. Not an option for most of us…. haha. So hormone based implants and add in a condom as well if you are paranoid.

  • That has no clear answer since you need to see what works for you

  • Abstinence

  • I have an IUD and I love it

  • Let's go down the list:

    1. Abstinence (no sex no birth)

    2. Oral sex (no penetration, no birth)

    3. Condoms (not 100% but pretty great method)

    4. Birth control (again not 100% but pretty great method)

    5. Plan B (very iffy but has worked for me each time)

    6. Pull out method (the worst of the bunch)

    • What do you mean by #5. Plan B?

    • It's an emergency contraception pill that gives you 3 days to take the pill before you have a high risk of pregnancy.

    • I see. I thought Plan B, you mean Plan B (Backdoor).

  • Implant...3 years where I don't have to worry

    • Anal is effective.

  • Abstinence. 100% effective.

  • Date someone w a vasectomy, but back in my previous vasectomy days I think the best thing is to double dose, you have an iud, and he wears a condom.

    Answer mine when you are bored:
