LARCs are a category of birth control that provides effective contraception for an extended period without much thinking on your part. Some methods include intrauterine devices (IUDs) and sub-dermal (under the skin) arm implants that provide contraception for years. LARCs are entirely reversible and some of the most effective methods out there: typically, less than 1% of women become pregnant on a LARC.

Short-Acting Oral Contraceptives
Short-acting oral contraceptives are a very effective form of pregnancy prevention that needs to be taken daily.
Taking the pill requires you to think about taking them every day at the same time. The pill is also reversible, meaning once you stop taking it, the contraceptive effect wears off rapidly, and you can become pregnant as quickly as someone using no contraceptive.
