Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
For contraception , pills are the surer method and offer better protection. Otherwise your boyfriend can use condoms. All the barrier methods like diaphragm, etc can also be used by you but it is not a very sure method.IUD is not advisable in virgins or those having no living issue.

my wife is pregnant (7th month running) for the 3rd delivery after 5 years from the date of her 2nd delivery. earlier two deliveries were through cesarian operation and most probably the third will also be c-section. my parents want her to get tubectomy done in order to avoid 4th pregrancy as it will be high risk in 4th pregnancy. the gynec advised not to go for the tubectomy as it will lead to other complications inculding bleeding. my wife is 29 years old. please advise. also please advise any other good alternatives to avoid pregnancies other than pills and vasectomy

I dont want to get pregnant. I was planning to take an i-pill but not sure if i should or not as i am not sure of my pregnancy. Please tell how will i confirm other than the home test, i had been pregnant sometime back and had gone under an abortion during that time(end of Jan11) .

Also if i go for the pills which are to be taken everyday what are the chances of getting pregnant, and will they affect me when i want to get pregnant. Kindly suggest.
