Research: Safe methods depends on the person- their medical history, and how likely they are going to use a method consistently. And then you'd compare that to the 'risks' of getting pregnant. For example, condoms are usually safe, but if not used regularly, aren't great for family planning. Talk to a provider. Good luck!

See a local doc: Birth control pills are considered serious medication and must be chosen based on many factors. A proper past history, family history and reproductive history are done first. An exam is necessary. Personal input on a variety of types would also be considered. There is no "best one", there are the ones that work out based on selection by a trained doc and proper follow up.

Many options: Iuds like Mirena (levonorgestrel) and paragard or implants like Nexplanon are the easiest to use and the most effective. There are many other options though such as pills, patch, nuvaring, condoms and depoprovera.

Several options: Common and the most effective forms of birth control include intrauterine devices, birth control pills, the depot provera shot, the Nexplanon implant, and male condoms - not necessarily in that order. Female condoms have some followers. Condoms add the benefit of minimizing the risk of sexually transmitted diseases.
