Preventing Pregnancy
A Pregnancy Happens When…
• After a man ejaculates
inside a woman, the
man’s sperm and the
woman’s egg join
together to make a
• When the zygote
attaches to the side of
a woman’s womb, a
pregnancy begins.
There are several methods of
family planning
Barrier Methods
Hormonal Methods
IUDs (Intrauterine Devices)
Natural Methods
Permanent Methods
All of these methods (EXCEPT FOR PERMANENT
METHODS) can be stopped at ANY time if a woman
decides to get pregnant or if she decides to try a different
method of family planning
Barrier methods work by physically
preventing the man’s sperm from
joining with the woman’s egg

clinic or an agency

planning that also protects against
Hormones and Hormonal Methods
• Hormones are chemicals in the body.
• Men and women have different hormones.
• It is hormones that make men grow mustaches
and women grow breasts.
• Hormones also determine when a woman can
get pregnant (when she is “fertile”) by getting her
body ready for pregnancy.
Hormonal Methods
When a woman uses a
hormonal method of family
planning, she puts hormones in
her body that prevent her from
getting pregnant by:
1. Preventing her body from
releasing an egg
2. Making it harder for the
sperm to reach the egg
3. Keeping the egg from
sticking inside the womb
A woman needs to see a doctor
to get a hormonal method!

Intrauterine Device: IUD
• Put into the womb by a doctor

• Can be removed when the woman decides she
wants to get pregnant or at any other time
Natural Methods
Natural methods help a woman know when
she is fertile, so that she can avoid having
sex at that time.
•A woman is usually fertile
during the middle days of her
monthly bleeding cycle
•A woman is usually NOT fertile
when she is breastfeeding for
the first 6 months after her baby
is born
Breastfeeding as a family planning
method works only if:
• The baby is less than 6
months old
• The woman breastfeeds
the baby every 6 hours
and the baby eats no
other food

cycle hasn’t started yet

to have any more children

pleasurable for men or women

desirable for men or woman
• Men are still able ejaculate, but
the ejaculate liquid does not
have sperm
Withdrawal or “Pulling Out”
The man pulls his penis out of the vagina before
he ejaculates

than not using any method of family planning at all

pregnancy BUT it can
help prevent some

method of family planning, there are pills that a
woman can take AFTERWARDS to prevent
pregnancy, called “Emergency Contraception”
Emergency Family Planning

the pills within 5 days
after sex

planning is most
effective within 3 days
after sex

stop a pregnancy if the woman is already pregnant
