What types of birth control are there?

There are various types of birth control including barrier methods, hormonal components, and Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (LARCs). Barrier methods block the sperm from entering the uterus and include condoms, the cervical cup, the sponge, and the diaphragm. Hormonal birth control must be prescribed by your doctor and includes the pill, the patch, the ring, and the shot. LARCs include implants like the ring (Nexplanon) and intrauterine devices (IUDs).
