What is the most commonly used contraceptive in Kenya?
Injectables (43.7%) and implants (35%) were the commonest method of contraceptives used.
What is the 100% safest method of contraception?
The most effective way to prevent pregnancy is abstinence. However, within the first year of committing to abstinence, many couples become pregnant because they have sex anyway but don’t use protection. So it’s a good idea even for people who don’t plan to have sex to learn about birth control.
Which birth control has fewer side effects?
No form of birth control is free of side effects, but the IUD (intrauterine device) seems to have few side effects. That’s why it’s become a popular choice among women of all ages. An IUD is a small device that your doctor places in your uterus to prevent pregnancy.
