In brief: Non chemical

There are multiple non-pharmacological options, ranging from extreme measures (abstinence, tubal ligation) to more "light" (and however unequally effective or reliable) like condoms or time-based calculations.
..Usually a combination of them will provide some degree of reliable anti conception. Consult your gyn dr.

In brief: Perhaps

Perhaps you can look into a intrauterine device.
There is a brand that is made of copper that does not contain hormone. The material in the copper makes the moist uterine environment poisonous to sperm, and sperm are unable to survive, preventing conception. Iuds can be placed by your doctor as a short, outpatient sterile procedure. The procedure takes less than 10 minutes and minimal pain is associated. It is a small device that is placed in your uterus and most iuds can be in place for 5-10 years. After the procedure, you may experience cramping and vaginal spotting. Ask your doctor about a copper iud.
