Dr. Adam Levy answered:

"Natural" methods of contraception?

Abstane

Contraception
The only legitimate so called natural family planning is abstinence. Rhythm is really not a method... it is Russian roulette. Modern birth control is both safe and effective. Fear of it is not needed in reality.

Dr. Hector Chapa answered:

White discharge but on contraception?

Not unusual

Birth_control
Hormonal contraception may cause vaginal discharge in some women. White/clear discharge that is odorless or without other symptoms may be normal, and expexcted. You should have an exam if their is a musty or fish-like odor, there is yellow/green dsch or any other vaginal symptoms like burning or itching. If you think you may be at risk for STDs, use a condom and you may consider a Gyn exam.

Is there a form of male contraception?

Not really

...other than condoms, of course. Vasectomy is very effective for sterilization, but that's permanent.

Can emergency contraception work for me?

Depends how soon

Open-uri20140416-30495-o3tlqa
Depends when you take it. The sooner after unprotected sex the better it works. Varies from around 95% effective if taken right away to about 85% if taken 3-5 days later. Consider a copper IUD if you're looking for something more effective.
