The only birth control options for guys that are currently available are condoms, sterilization, and the withdrawal method. There have been some promising leads for other options, but they’re still in development.
I've been using withdrawal, but want something more effective. What options can I talk with my doctor about?
Good for you for looking into more reliable methods of birth control!
If your partner pulls out perfectly every single time, then withdrawal is about 96% effective. This is a hard method to get perfect, though, so it’s more likely that withdrawal will be around 78% effective.
Of those women who use withdrawal exactly as directed, about 4 in 100 will experience an accidental pregnancy during the first year they use this method.
Of those women who do not use withdrawal exactly as directed, about 22 in 100 will experience an accidental pregnancy during the first year they use this method.
