The quick answer is yes. But like any medication, there are certain risks and side effects associated with any type of birth control. For most women who are healthy and do not have any other health concerns, it's likely that any method will be safe. For those with some health concerns, talk to your health care provider about what options will work for you. With so many different methods to choose from, we're sure you'll find your perfect fit.
