Contraception Center

Contraception is any process used to prevent pregnancy. Contraceptives may be used at the time of intercourse (e.g., condoms, diaphragms, spermicides) or regularly (e.g., birth control pills, intrauterine devices). Surgical methods are available for men (vasectomy) and women (tubal ligation). Other methods range from natural family planning to the morning after pill.
