Contraception Q&A

What is contraception?

Contraception prevents pregnancy. Also called birth control, contraception makes it possible for you to start a family, or avoid doing so, on your own terms. The team at Women’s Care of Beverly Hills gives you all the information you need to select a form of contraception that aligns with your lifestyle. 

There are multiple factors to consider while trying different contraception options, including their permanence, frequency, and convenience. You must also consider your circumstances and preferences. With help from your gynecologist, you can make the decision confidently. 

How does contraception work?

While there are numerous contraceptive options for you to choose from, there are only a few ways contraceptives work. You can combine methods for extra protection or stick with the one you trust. 

Contraceptive methods include:

Barrier methods

Barrier methods are types of contraception that work by physically blocking the sperm from entering your uterus through your cervix. They include condoms and diaphragms. 

Hormonal methods

Hormonal methods prevent pregnancy by causing hormone fluctuations that prevent ovulation, the release of a viable egg from your ovaries. 


Spermicides are products or materials that kill sperm to prevent pregnancy. They include creams, suppositories, and gels. 


Both the copper intrauterine device (IUD) and the so-called hormonal IUDs work by damaging or killing sperm.
