So to gain some knowledge on the topic we spoke to doctors from Marie Stopes UK who pretty much know everything about contraceptives in the UK.
1.It helps to be prepared before you see your doctor about contraceptives.
2.Condoms aren't the most effective method.
3.Forgetful people should really try something other than the Pill.
4.It can take a while to find the right Pill for you.
5.You don't have to take the Pill the same time every day, but it's good practice.
6.There is no research to suggest that using birth control long-term will affect your fertility.
7.A coil can get dislodged, although it is very rare.
8.The IUD and IUS should not cause ongoing pain.
9.You can get period abnormalities with hormonal contraceptives.
10.There is no "best" contraceptive.
