Health Education 44, Chapter 6 1. Most effective contraceptive methods such as barrier methods, and hormonal methods. Drawbacks : Barrier methods. The male condom: is only temporary means of birth control available for men. Condoms are less effective and more likely to break. Also condom decreases the sensation.
