How well does it work?

birth control
There are two ways to rate how well birth control methods work. You can say how good they are if people use them perfectly. Or you can look at what happens in real life – because people aren’t usually perfect!

The list under birth control methods goes for the real-life version – the methods are in order of how well they work based on ‘typical use’.

Some methods would come much higher up the list if we arranged it based on ‘perfect use’.
