Many options: There are many options available for effective contraception. The best method for you depends on your age, medical history, your contraceptive goals ( long term or short term), previous forms of contraception and why you discontinued them, etc. Speak to your local gyn, they will be glad to discuss your options with you.

More information: Do you want to start birth control and want to know your options? If so you should talk to your primary care doc and OB for more information. Your options include but are not limited to barrier protection like condoms, dental dams, diaphragms, hormonal meds like oral contraceptive pills, depoprovera injections, patches, nuvaring, intrauterine devices, and lastly abstinence.
