Abstinence (not having sex) is the only method of birth control that is 100% effective.

Abstinence is not having sex. When a person decides to practice abstinence, that means he or she has decided not to have sex. Abstinence is the only form of birth control that is 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. Although many other methods can have high rates of success if used properly, they can fail occasionally. The rate of success of other birth control methods varies depending on the type of birth control. Practicing abstinence, however, ensures that a girl will not become pregnant because there is no opportunity for sperm to fertilize an egg.
