After 1 week, the patch is removed from one location and then a new one is placed elsewhere. During the fourth week no patch is used, allowing menstruation to occur. Ortho Evra

Contains a plastic frame covered with a copper wire that causes changes in the uterine lining that prevent implantation of the fertilized egg. Paragard
Contains aa plastic frame that surrounds a reservoir containing progestin. The progestin is slowly released from the IUD and functions like the other progestin-containing contraceptives: It suppresses ovulation, thickens cervical mucus, and blocks implantation. Mirena

a covering of latex, polyurethane, or animal membrane that is placed over the penis to prevent deposition of sperm in the female reproductive tract. Male Condom

Withdrawal of the penis from the vagina just before ejaculation Coitus interruptus
contain various mixtures of synthetic estrogens and progestin (a chemical with actions similar to progesterone). They prevent pregnancy by negative feedback inhibition of GnRH release from the hypothalamus, and FSH and LH release from the anterior pituitary gland. The low levels of FSH and LH usually prevent the development of a dominant follicle in the ovary. As a result, levels of estrogens do not rise, the midcycle LH surge does not occur, and ovulation does not take place. Even if ovulation does occur, as it does in some cases, the progestin in oral contraceptives thickens cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to reach the egg, and it also blocks implantation in the uterus.
