Comparing Contraceptive Methods provides an overview of different methods that are available to women and their partners. Rather than focusing on the technical features of each method, this video shows how different methods affect the lives of users. Contraceptive methods are compared based on effectiveness, ease of use, and special features so that the choice is best matched to a woman’s personal needs and life circumstances.
