Birth Control Answer A49934
Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your doctor/gynecologist is the best to help you in deciding the type of hormonal birth control measure best suited to you (after ruling out any contraindications for hormonal birth control use). Hormonal contraceptives help in preventing pregnancy by any or all of these 3 mechanisms: suppression of ovulation, cervical mucus changes making it difficult for sperms to enter inside uterus, endometrial changes to prevent implantation. Few women have reported having shorter and lighter bleeding while being on hormonal contraceptive use, whereas few women have reported having breakthrough bleeding and other bleeding abnormalities while being on hormonal contraceptive use. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.

To have sex and also avoid sexually transmitted diseases you will need a barrier method in addition to your birth control method. Male and female condoms are the best barriers for STDs and using spermicides that can kill some STDs help in case the condom fails in disease prevention and in birth control. The right types of spermicides can be used inside the female and also inside the condoms, or both.

The female pill alone will not prevent STD transmission between you two in either direction, male to female or female to male.

If you both only have sex with each other and no one else, then you can both be tested for all STDs. And then if all clear for both of you and no outside chances of new diseases getting inside either of you, then the female pill would be the birth control and strict faithfulness by both of you would be the sole STD control. Hope this helps you both.
