A Guide to Birth Control for Heavy Periods

What Is Birth Control?

Birth control is the practice of using different surgical procedures, sexual options, agents, drugs, or tools to prevent pregnancy or conception. In other words, it allows people to decide when they want to have babies. Both women and men can have access to a variety of treatments and devices to achieve this goal. However, keep in mind that some methods can be more reliable and effective than others. How carefully you use them may affect the overall effectiveness. Among birth control methods, contraceptive pills are probably the most common and effective option. [1]
