Nowadays there are many different contraceptive options (e.g. pill, condoms, copper IUD, hormone IUD, diaphragm, etc.). It is also important to keep in mind the protection against sexually transmitted diseases. I see it as my task to work with you to find the most suitable contraceptive method for your current and individual life situation. In doing so, I will be happy to explain the advantages and disadvantages of each method and help you weigh them up against each other.
The variety of contraceptive options is reflected in their different principles of action:
- Mechanical contraceptives / so-called barrier methods.
- Hormonal contraceptives
- Chemical contraceptives
An essential criterion for selecting the appropriate contraceptive method is the safety factor, the so-called “Pearl index”. This enables a standardized assessment of the reliability of a contraceptive method. The Pearl Index measures the success of a contraceptive method based on scientific studies as follows: If 100 women use the same method of contraception for 1 year, the number of women who still become pregnant is equal to the Pearl Index. This means that the lower the Pearl Index of a contraceptive method, the safer it is.
