Whether you’re in a classroom, an after-school program, or online, sex educators will be asked numerous questions about birth control: “Which method should I take?” “What if I take my pill late?” “My mom said that I can only get an IUD after I have kids, is that true?” In this session, we will go over the methods of birth control that are currently on the market and discuss how each works, how well they work, and the benefits and pitfalls of each. The workshop will cover condoms, hormonal methods (such as the pill, patch, and ring), IUDs, sterilization, and Phexxi, the newest product on the market which may be in a category of its own. We will also look at withdrawal and cycle tracking apps and discuss whether they should be referred to as methods of birth control. Finally, we will go into detail on the complicated way in which efficacy is calculated and what typical and perfect use numbers mean. Educators will have a chance to ask their questions and leave prepared to answer questions from others.
