One of the biggest issues in the world of healthcare, law, and politics over the past few years has to do with contraception. Now, it is important for everyone to make sure that they have access to reliable forms of birth control. When the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed, there was a mandate included in the law for birth control. Many women depend on reliable forms of birth control for their overall health. Now, there are some emerging birth control options that everyone should note in 2020 and beyond. These birth control options have the opportunity to change the way this vital service delivered.
One of the most popular options both during the last few years and in 2020 is going to be something called Nexplanon. For those who might not know, this birth control option is a small rod that is placed in the arm. Similar to an IUD, this rod then releases a steady stream of hormones that can prevent pregnancy. One of the major benefits of this rod is that it will last for several months or even a year before it has to be replaced. This means that people will not have to get this red reimplanted very often. Furthermore, unlike an IUD, this rod is not implanted in the uterus. Finally, the biggest benefit of this rod is that it eliminates the need for an oral pill. Those who have trouble remembering to take a pill every day will want to check out this birth control option.
Another emerging birth control is actually on the male side say the experts at Law Office of Matthew L. Sharp. In the past, the only form of male birth control was the condom. Regardless of which birth control method people choose, it is still important to wear a condom. This is the only form of birth control that will prevent the transmission of an STI. On the other hand, there is an emerging birth control option for men in the form of an oral pill. This pill acts to reduce the sperm count in the ejaculate. Now, men might have access to an oral form of birth control as well. It will be exciting to watch this form of birth control reach the open market.
Finally, there is still work being done to improve the oral forms of birth control for women said experts at Jason D. Mills & Associates. Right now, there are multiple options available. Therefore, women do have some degree of freedom over their birth control regimen. Unfortunately, many of these birth control options have side effects that women just don’t like. These might include nausea, cramping, and more. In the future, there might be new oral options for women who are looking to try something new.
