Part of being a good parent is making sure you can give your all. For many, that means planning when to start a family; for others, it means limiting the number of children they have. That’s where contraception comes in. Luckily, the range of contraceptive options available is much larger than it used to be.

Today contraceptive methods come in all shapes, sizes and types — for both men and women. Be it birth control pills, IUDs, tube tying, vasectomies, condoms or even the emergency contraction pill, it’s just a matter of finding the birth control option that’s right for you at the right time.
