About  #mycontraception


Your power to decide

It is our fundamental belief that it should be in your hands to decide how and when to start a family without having to worry about an unwanted pregnancy. MyContraception.com aims to help you take your health into your own hands whether you are new to contraception, or your current method no longer works for you. 

MyContraception.com is an educational website available in more than 20 countries in local language. It has been created and has been operated by Bayer AG since 2018. The objective is to provide knowledge about the different contraceptive methods available to you and assist you in comparing their pros and cons. By providing information and tools, we want to empower you to have a confident and productive discussion with your doctor or nurse to jointly find the option that best suits your lifestyle, plans, and needs. 

We believe that family planning, including access to modern contraceptives, should be a fundamental right for every woman in the world. We want to empower girls and women to decide when  to have children, especially in low- and middle-income countries, where teenage pregnancy continues to be a serious health concern. This not only increases women’s health, but it also gives them greater autonomy over their lives, with better access to education and subsequent employment. Therefore, contraceptive choice and the knowledge about the choice, improves women's health and promotes social change for women, their families, and the wider communities.
