Using condoms every time a person has sex can greatly reduce the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) as well as protect against unplanned pregnancy.
The contraceptive pill must be taken every day at about the same time. A packet of pills will last a month. They are very effective at preventing unplanned pregnancy if they are taken as directed.
LARCs include contraceptive methods like the contraceptive injection, the contraceptive implant and intrauterine devices and systems (IUD/IUS).
Emergency contraception sometimes called the morning-after pill is a pill that can be given by a health professional at a young peoples health clinic or pharmacy. Emergency contraception can help to prevent unplanned pregnancy if no contraception was used or if the condom failed.
