Patch. He is attached to the shoulder and secretes hormones that through the skin into the blood. This is a fairly reliable method of contraception. Need to change the patch once a week. However, in its application may experience side effects such as itching and spotting that after a certain period of time pass.

Ring. Ring is placed in the vagina, from which secrete hormones. It is introduced without the help of a gynecologist. But this ring is not very convenient, as it should be applied on certain days of the cycle, take out, take a break and re-inserted.

Injections. The doctor inserts the appropriate dose of hormones that block the egg for three months. It is very convenient in the sense that by making one shot, you can forget about the fear of unwanted pregnancy for three months. However, this method is suitable to many, as it has many side effects from the termination of menstruation to infertility. Therefore, before you opt for this method of contraception should weigh the "pros" and "cons".

Hormonal implants. Introduced under the skin of the ampoule with hormones and within five years in women excluded the possibility of pregnancy.
