Contraception helps prevent pregnancy.

There are many different types of contraception available, but the best choice of contraception is the type that works for you.

For example, some contraception is easier to use like the hormonal IUD, while others might have low or no hormones such as condoms.

That’s why it’s a good idea to talk to a doctor, nurse or Aboriginal Health Worker about the options available.
