Discuss with doctor : Effectiveness of birth control varies depending on the method type and use by the patient. Permanent sterilization, implants, iuds are among the most effective (99% with perfect use) while pills, patches, and injections are not as effective but still reliably prevent pregnancy (94-98%). A woman's knowledge of proper timing and administration should be from extensive counseling by her doctor.
