Yes: All birth control pills are more than 95% effective with typical use, But consider a long acting, reversible method of birth control like an implant or IUD so that you don't have to remember to take a birth control pill. Easy to place and fewer side effects as well because they provide a sustained release of hormones at a low dose, so they're very safe!
