What are Some Barrier Birth Control Methods?
Barrier birth control methods are forms of birth control that attempt to block passage of sperm into the uterus, so that the sperm cannot reach the fallopian tubes, fertilize an egg, and result in unintended pregnancy. All of these methods but one are intended for use by women. The only barrier birth control method for men is the male condom. Many barrier birth control methods also make use of spermicides. Spermicides decrease likelihood that an accidental escape of sperm will result in pregnancy.
