I recently got married and want to find out about various methods of contraception that I can use which are safe and also full proof.
Dr. Megha Tuli
Gynaecologist
Hi dear choice of contraceptive depends on your age, if you have any kids, if you are on any medication for any health condition etc. In general oral contraceptive pills are really good and effective. Many women also prefer the 3 monthly DMPA injections. If long term contraception is needed, you can also opt for IUCD like Copper T or Mirena.
