Hormonal vs. Barrier Birth Control
Two of the most popular forms of birth control are hormonal methods and barrier methods. This includes condoms as well as oral contraceptives, or “the pill.” Both of these can help you prevent unwanted pregnancy. However, there are different advantages and disadvantages to each.
Additionally, some forms of oral contraceptives are better than others. YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella are three birth control pills that have been linked to deadly blood clots as well as stroke and heart attacks. If you have suffered adverse side effects due to taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, please contact a compassionate yet determined YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.
Both men and women can use barrier contraceptives to prevent conception. Men can wear latex or polyurethane condoms that encase the penis and prevent the ejaculation of semen into women. Women can use the female version of condoms that line the vagina and block the opening to the uterus, called a diaphragm, which is a cup-like barrier that serves as a block to the uterus.
Barrier contraceptives can also help prevent sexually transmitted diseases by preventing the spread of bodily fluids. However, these are sometimes unreliable due to breakage. Additionally, you must have a barrier contraceptive available if you plan to have sex.
Hormonal Birth Controls
Although things like dermal patches and intrauterine devices also use the release of hormones to prevent pregnancy, the most common type of hormonal birth control is oral contraption, or the pill. The pill is almost 100% effective if used correctly, yet this means that you have to dedicate yourself to taking it at the exact same time every day. Missing even a single dose can increase your risk of pregnancy.
Unfortunately, oral contraceptives can also increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, and heart attack, among other things. If you are a victim of the oral birth control pills YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should contact an experienced YAZ side effects lawyer from Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.
