Hormonal vs. Non-Hormonal IUDs
For example, some women do very well on hormonal treatments like the pill or ring, while others have a negative reaction to them. For women who do not want hormonal treatments, a copper IUD is often the best option.
Many women prefer to have access to condoms in addition to another form of birth control, because they help prevent the spread of STDs and provide a backup for peace of mind. It’s also important to remember that many women take birth control to treat conditions like PCOS or to manage PMS and acne, and not all birth control options work the same way for this.
