What is the most effective contraception type?

The most effective contraception is the implant. This is followed by the contraceptive coils (IUD and IUS), the injection, patches, vaginal rings, contraceptive pills and condoms.

How effective contraception is can depend on how they are used. Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) is highly effective. This is because you don’t have to remember to take it or use it during sex. LARC includes the implant, injection, IUD and IUS.

Condoms are the only contraception to protect against sexually transmitted infections (STI’s).
