Statistics on Birth Control

You always hear that abstinence is the only 100% form of birth control. What exactly are the statistics on other forms like condoms and the pill?

I shot on over to google and did a few searches and came up with the following information from the American Pregnancy Association.

I have ordered the birth control methods by most effective to least. Obviously, if you use more than one form of birth control, you will decrease the chances of pregnancy even more.

Please keep in mind these percentages are based on averages and as if the method was used alone. Also, the methods listed that do not cover the genital region (ie a condom) is only a birth control method, they will not protect you from STDs.

Depo Shot – 99.7%
Hormonal injection taken ever 3 months by the female to prevent the uterus from being able to accept a pregnancy.

IUD (Copper) – 99.2% 
Small device inserted by a physician that changes the pH of the uterus.

Patch – 99% 
Patch that is put on the body that releases hormone into the female’s system. Generally changed weekly.

IUD (Hormone) – 98% 
Inserted by a physician like the copper IUD only it releases hormone must like a patch, preventing the uterus from being able to accept a pregnancy.

Pill – 95% 
Hormones taken orally.

Condom (male) – 86% 
Sheath usually made of latex that rolls down over the penis and traps the sperm, preventing them from entering the vagina. A condom alone has a lower effectiveness rate although most are sold with spermacide added as a coating to the condom.

Withdraw Method – 81% 
Regular intercourse using no protection; however, before the male ejaculates, he will remove his penis from the vagina.

Diaphram – 80% 
Usually made of rubber/latex, it is domelike in appearance and is inserted into the vagina prior to intercourse. It caps the opening of the cervix preventing sperm from going through.

Condom (female) – 79% 
This works much like the male condom only it is wider in diameter and is inserted into the vagina.

Spermicide – 74% 
A cream, jelly or foam that is put into the vagina at a specific time interval before intercourse. Used alone it is not as effective as it would be if used in addition to a condom.

Nothing – 15% 
Regular intercourse with the male ejaculating into the female.
