Expert Answer:

Dear Student,
 
Many ways have been devised to avoid pregnancy such as  
  1. Mechanical barrier
  2. Hormonal methods:
  3. Intra-uterine devices (IUD):
  4. Surgical approach:

Surgical methods can be used for removal of unwanted pregnancies (Medical Termination of Pregnancy-MTP). This is nowadays being used for female foeticide. Because of reckless female foeticides, child sex ratio is declining at an alarming rate. For that reason prenatal sex determination has been prohibited by law. For a healthy society the female-male sex ratio must be maintained.
