The Most Effective Form of Birth Control

Birth Control

Would you guess that it’s the pill? The patch? Sorry, try again. Despite the popularity of the pill and its hormonal cousins the patch and the ring, a recent study found that those who relied on an intrauterine device, or IUD, as their birth control method were 20 times less likely to become pregnant. The primary reason is because the IUD leaves no room for user error; while the pill and the patch require perfect compliance in order to be effective.

Women may forget to take the pill every day or neglect to put the patch on. With the IUD, patients don’t have to worry. IUDs are small, T-shaped pieces of plastic or copper inserted into the uterus and can prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years. It’s a bit more invasive than simply swallowing a pill—requiring a doctor to insert or remove it—but it’s almost foolproof.
