hello, Oral contraceptives are safer and using a condom is best. It can be taken by women who have not been pregnant before. Once you plan to conceive, stop taking them. IUCD can be considered as well.

Hello. Besides condoms, contraceptive pills are a safe option. They have minor side effects which are well tolerated by most patients and reduce on regular use. It can be safely given to women who have not conceived before. Whenever you want to conceive, you can stop them. You can also consider IUCD, which is a one time procedure.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
There are many ways to avoid pregnancy.
Firstly learn about the "safe period" and when she is most infertile, you can do it.
Use of contraceptives like condom, spermicidal jellies, and long term contraceptives like copper T are also an option depending on how long you are not planning for pregnancy.
Other than these, oral contraceptives are also an option.
There are no side effects.
Consult a gynaecologist in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.
