I want the most effective and safe form of birth control besides abstinence. I am 17, please help, is the shot effective?
Copper IUD: Great question! Best to discuss this with your gynecologist, as almost all forms of birth control are considered extremely safe and highly effective. However, and this is my personal opinion, an intrauterine device like Paragard might be a good option to discuss with your doctor as you don't need to worry about accidentally skipping a dose (and is completely reversible). Hope that helps! ...Read more

What's the MOA of ECP ethinyl estradiol+levonorgestrel? Is it effective if taken 1-2 days before computed ovulation day? Help please!
Oral contraceptives: The answer is no, it will not effectively prevent pregnancy if you took only one or two pills two days prior to ovulation.

As to how long that takes, that depends on when you want to get pregnant and use the ovaries for ovulation. They still may need to be "jump started" with an ovulation induction drug when you are ready for conception. ...Read more
