This is a great question!
If someone is taking a hormonal form of birth control to reduce the risk of pregnancy, they would only be on one form at a time. Most forms of birth control can be up to 99% effective in reducing the risk of pregnancy when used correctly.
So while someone wouldn’t want to use more than one barrier method, or more than one hormonal method, using a hormonal method with a barrier method would greatly reduce the risk of both pregnancy and STIs!
