If you are sexually active then you have probably already thought about birth control. This is one of the important things you need to worry about, but unfortunately lot of people are not as informed as they should be. There are as many opinions about it as there are birth control methods you could use. Some people are for it but some are against it, and that is a choice each person needs to make for themselves. You can only make informed and right decision if you understand everything that goes with that decision. Isn’t it awful that the topic of birth control is still taboo among many people? There would probably be a lot less of unwanted pregnancies if young girls or even boys aren’t afraid to ask for information about birth control. Did you know that there has been some kind of contraception in 1564? Gabriel Fallopius recommended the use of moistened linen sheaths. Birth control has indeed come a long way from 1564.

If you are not ready for parenthood just yet, then you don’t have many choices, right? Well, that is just not true. You can choose among different methods that vary from the contraceptive pill, condoms or vasectomy to the coil, skin patch or even the contraceptive injection. That is a lot different than using condoms made from animal intestines, which is the method of birth control that was popular in 1700s. There are still a lot of things that will happen in the future of birth control. One great idea will come to the market in 2015, and that is Reversible Inhibition of Sperm Under Guidance. This amazing method will be 100% effective for approximately 10 years. Isn’t that amazing?  In this interesting infographic you will find out everything about history and the future of birth control.
