Types of Birth Control
An unplanned pregnancy can have serious consequences on a woman’s life. Thus, there are many different ways in which women can prevent unwanted pregnancies. However, some methods are more effective than others, and some methods are safer than others. Before you choose your desired method of birth control, it is important to understand each of your options.
Some oral contraceptives contain strong hormone-like ingredients that can disrupt the normal rhythm of your body. This can put you at risk for problems like cerebral hemorrhage and deep-vein thrombosis. One potentially dangerous oral contraceptive is YAZ, also marketed as Yasmin or Ocella. If you believe that you have developed health problems as a result of taking these forms of birth control, you should contact a YAZ lawyer from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187 to discuss your legal options.
Common Forms of Contraception
Birth control takes many different forms. There are hormonal drugs as well as physical blocks to fertilization. When used correctly, many of these forms of contraception can be very helpful in preventing unplanned pregnancies. Some common forms of contraception include:
- Physical blocks – condoms, diaphragms, cervical caps, etc.
- Natural methods – abstinence or ovulation tracking
- Intrauterine devices
- Hormone shots
- Hormone-releasing shots
- Oral contraception – “the pill”
Both men and women can undergo sterilization surgeries to forever prevent pregnancy. Men can have vasectomies, which cut the tube that carries sperm up to the opening of the penis. Women may choose a hysterectomy, where the uterus is removed. Additionally, women can have a tubal ligation, which prevents eggs from leaving the ovaries and traveling into the fallopian tubes or uterus.
One of the most popular methods to prevent unwanted pregnancy is through oral contraceptives. However, some birth control drugs carry serious side effects that can affect you for the rest of your life. YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella are three such oral contraceptives; they can cause strokes, heart attacks, and other problems. If you have suffered adverse effects from taking one of these three drugs, you should contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.
