Saba® makes you feel #CómodaContigo.

When we start using birth control methods, it’s totally normal to have many doubts about them.

The truth is that at some point in our lives we were taught about some things, but everything only becomes real when the time to use them arrives. We don’t know what method we should we use, what it implies, we can even feel like our questions are silly or dumb. But don’t worry; we are going to answer the most common questions about them. Just keep reading!
 
What birth control is most effective?
 The usual recommendation is to combine a hormonal method with a barrier one, such as the condom. As an extra, remember to visit your doctor so that he or she can recommend a birth control that suits your lifestyle and body.
 
What methods protect against an STD?
 Many STDs are transmitted through direct skin-to-skin or fluid contact, and condoms are the only method that protects you against this.
 
Do hormonal methods make us gain weight?
 There may be changes in your weight, but none in a permanent way, so you have nothing to worry about.
 
Can we get pregnant during our period?
