A barrier Birth Control method is one that blocks sperm from reaching the uterus. Examples of barrier birth control methods include condoms, diaphragms, sponges, and cervical caps.
Barrier method means there is a physical device to prevent sperm from entering the woman's reproductive tract.

Male or female condom, sponge, cervical cap, diaphragm are all barrier methods.

Birth Control Pills, IUD, sterilization, withdrawal, rhythm, are not barrier methods.
These methods work by preventing the sperm from getting to and fertilizing the egg

What birth control can you use if you are allergic to the hormonal birth control patch shot and pill and you don't want to get an IUD and are there any herbal non-hormonal methods?

I think you need to educate yourself about the methods of birth control. "Allergy" to all hormonal methods is unheard of, but if it is so, herbal options are not likely to be easier. Remaining methods are natural family planning, abstinence, and barrier methods such as condoms, vaginal sheath, diaphragm, cervical cap, and contraceptive sponge. These methods are less effective than other options, and require you to follow directions exactly.
