In brief: The one you will use

The best type of birth control is one that you will consistently and comfortably use.
You have to balance convenience (how easy is it to use), efficacy (how well it works), and our preferences. Ask for information on all types of birth control and keep an open mind about different forms.

In brief: Abstinance

This is 100% effective.
After abstainance, the concurrent use of ocp's with barrier methods will approach this efficiency.
