Here are some forms of birth control (all types for females; condoms for males) from most effective to least effective at preventing pregnancy.
Before you decide to have sex or if you are already having sex, you need to know how to stay healthy. Having sex may affect the way you feel about yourself or how others feel about you. Half of all teens in the United States have never had sex. Plan ahead how you are going to say no so you are clearly understood. Nothing works perfectly to prevent STIs except abstinence (no sex).
Even if you think you know everything you need to know about sex, take a few minutes and read on. Many teens believe waiting until they are ready to have sex is important. For example, some teens may want to wait until they are older (adults); other teens may want to wait until they feel their relationship is ready. However, if you're going to have sex, using condoms is the best way to reduce the risk for getting STIs. Remember to use a latex condom every time you have sex—no matter what other type of birth control you and your partner might also use.
To protect against getting an infection from having oral sex, use a condom, dental dam, or non-microwavable plastic wrap. To make sure you stay healthy, get regular medical checkups.
If you have had sex in the past or are having sex, your doctor may recommend testing for STIs. Your doctor can answer questions about safe and effective methods, side effects, and costs.
