What contraceptives are available in the Philippines?
Being sexually active comes with a lot of anxiety over the risk of pregnancy or getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). And now that sex is slowly becoming less taboo in the Philippines, talking about birth control shouldn’t be a problem.
There is a wide range of birth control methods in the world, but not all of them are available in our country. The Department of Health (DOH) has already established different family planning programs in the past years, and various types of contraceptives can now be purchased over the counter. We’ve compiled a list of available contraceptives in the Philippines that you can choose from.
But remember, it’s still best to consult with yourobstetrician-gynecologist(OB-GYN), especially since each person has different needs and health conditions.
