Female contaceptives

Conception/Female contaceptives include all contraceptive methods for women* that are used in order to prevent pregnancy. There are different types of contraception, such as barrier methods (e.g. femidoms), hormonal methods (e.g. the pill) and intrauterine methods (copper IUD). We explicitly attribute the term contraception to women because they receive sperm via sexual intercourse and thus pregnancy can occur. For men, we refer to โ€œprocreationโ€ in terms of contraception.

* While we speak of women and men, we are aware of the diversity of genders and demand better contraception for all people.
