no, wait a second, correct answers are:

Abstinence - 100% typical effectiveness,

Sterilization - 100% typical effectiveness

Progestin implant - 100% typical effectiveness

Copper IUD - 99% typical effectiveness

Depo provera - 97% typical effectiveness

Lactation - 95% typical effectiveness

OCP - 92% typical effectivenes

Barrier (condom) - 85% typical effectiveness, other barrier methods (spermicid, diaphragm - 71-84% typical effectiveness)

And withdrawl method (Pull out) is 73% typical effectiveness



And these are just some examples....

Err, surely these are stats for effectiveness of contraception and not the question at hand?
I'm pretty sure IUDs increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy

Yes, you are right. Sorry.
The point is that there are lots of things that decrease the rate of pregnancy and ectopic pregnancy.

Shouldn't put IUD in there, good point.

Ah. Fair enough. I see your logic, although I don't think contraception efficacy equates to decrease in risk of ectopic pregnancies.
My reasoning is that anything that decreases STDs will contribute to low ectopic rates. So I'm curious to know why OCPs are the answer.

yea okkk guys, the question was a bit vaguely put...
because i just made it myself while reading MTB 3, kind of high yield i thought
because i didnt know that OCP decreses risk of ectopic
and the reason - i guess its bcoz it decreses risk of PID
on the other hand PID is a complication of IUDs
so i m just guesing by comparison it decreses ectopic rate

pregnancy rate = 0 = ectopic pregnancy = 0
which is not contraception method causing decreased ectopic, which is wat the question says

abstinence and barrier

because these are the only methods that decrease sexually transmitted diseases
and we know std's lead to PID, which is a main risk factor of ectopic pregnancy.
