Birth Control Options: An Overview

This chart shows the chance of getting pregnant for women who use different methods of birth control. Each box on the chart contains a list of birth control methods that are similar in effectiveness. The most effective methods are at the top of the chart.

It’s not known if NEXPLANON is as effective in very overweight women, because clinical studies of NEXPLANON did not include many overweight women.
