ABSTRACT
The article discusses various types of contraceptives for male and female. Birth-control pills are considered to be most effective method of reversible birth control, which work primarily by preventing ovulation. Condom, a thin rubber sheath, is rolled onto the erect penis before sexual intercourse, not only to prevent pregnancy, but also prevent the transmission of most sexually transmitted diseases. Vaginal diaphragm is a rubber cup fitted over a flexible wire frame that blocks sperm from entering the uterus. INSET: Ovulation-Predictor Kits.
