Seventy percent of women use a BC that they would change in some way if they could, according to a survey sponsored by Merck. Take this quiz, developed with the help of Pamela D. Berens, MD., professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive science at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, to see which type will keep you not pregnant and happy.
