==How did THAT happen?== I have a friend whose husband did not want any children at all. So she took the Birth Control pill and he used condoms every single time they had sex. Well, they had two children, a boy and a girl. She said that she has no idea how that happend, but it did. A paternity test might offer a clue. ==General answer== If you know the failure rates for both methods you can calculate the failure rate for combining them, theoretically. Let's say Method A is 90 percent effective. That means that ten percent of the women using the method will get pregnant in any one year. Let's say Method B is only 80 percent effective, so its failure rate is 20 percent per year. The failure rate of both methods employed together, however, is the product of the failure rates, 0.1 x 0.2, or 0.02. Subtract that from one, and you get the effectiveness of the combination: 0.98. Pretty darn impressive. Of course, this assumes that the methods are compatible. Some non-latex condoms are not compatible with spermicides, so using them together could increase the failure rate.
Birth control pills are like 99.8% effective if taken properly and condoms are closer to 97%.
Birth control pills if taken according to instructions.
Some different forms of birth control includes birth control pills, morning-after pills, condoms, diaphragms, vasectomy for men, and sterilization for women.
Absolutley not! The two things that do are: no sex or condoms. Birth control pills control the births of babies, nothing more.
Condoms, IUDs, spermicidal sprays, celibacy, pills.
Pass out Condoms or Birth Control pills instead of food.
Avoiding sex :) or using contraceptives; birth control pills or condoms.
It is always good to use a backup method of birth control, even when using condoms. Condoms are the only form of birth control that also protects against STDs.
There are many birth control methods aside from traditional birth control pills. Some of those include: Condoms, IUD, Nuva Ring, Depo-Provera, FemCap, Diaphram, and Female Condoms.
If you use condoms you do not need to take birth control pills, because the condoms stop you from getting pregnant by stopping the sperm from entering your system.
Answer I don't know why you couldn't use birth control pills and if you can't there is always condoms.
The anti-pregnancy kit will help a woman not to get pregnant. The kit has birth control pills, the day after pills, and condoms.
Birth ontrol pills may not work as well while you are using Penicillin-VK . To prevent pregnancy, use an extra form of birth control (eg, condoms).
Birth control pills are quite effective for preventing pregnacy, however NOTHING but total abstinence can prevent std's. Condoms help, but there are no guarantees!!
Absolutely YES! Birth control pills only protect you from getting pregnant. Condoms, while not foolproof, will protect you from STDs.
You can make an appointment with Planned Parenthood. They can write a prescription for birth control pills. They also give away free condoms.
Very, very unlikely. Condoms alone is considered 98% effective, and pills even better.
Birth control pills increase the risk for blood clots. If you already have blood clots, birth control pills could make the clots worse. There are other birth control methods which could be good alternatives, condoms, diaphragms, shots, and IUDs.
It is possible to get pregnant when changing birth control pills. If you have not been on birth control for at least 2 months, you should use a back-up method, such as condoms, for the first week of starting your new birth control, to avoid putting yourself at risk of pregnancy.
If you can, go to a free clinic to get a prescription for birth control pills. Otherwise go to a doctor to get the prescription. Then you can get the pills from any pharmacy. On a side note, condoms are still a better, easier and safer alternative
You should definitely use something. Condoms prevent pregnancy and STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). Birth control pills only prevent pregnancy. It is possible to use both, for double protection. If you are on birth control it is a good idea to use condoms too to protect against STDs. If you do not regularly have sex, you may prefer to use condoms, but if you regularly have sex then you may prefer birth control pills. With birth control pills you would need to remember to take them every day at around the same time. Even missing just one pill can lead to pregnancy. With condoms you would need to remember to have some ready to use. Thee are many different types of birth control pills and also many types of condoms. To find out more about birth control, speak to your doctor or nurse. To discuss both options and which would be best for you then I suggest going to an advice centre where they can give you information that will help you to make a decision. You could also discuss it with your doctor or nurse.
I am not allergic to birth control pills.
Packet of birth control pills on the kitchen counter, receipts from the pharmacy for birth control pills, or your wife asking, "Have you seen my birth control pills?"
No matter what, you are better off using condoms and birth control pills.
