Is it possible for me take two different birth control methods at the same time?

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.

A barrier method like a condom can reduce the risk of pregnancy and STIs. Hormonal birth control does not reduce the risk of STIs.

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!
