Contraceptive technology has exploded at breakneck speed. The options now available can bewilder patients who need practical advice for family planning.
Contraception provides just that practical advice. Divided into three sections covering selection and cost comparison, individual methods of contraception, and risks and benefits for various patient groups, the editor presents a clear pathway to help your patients decide which method is best for them.
The book covers all available contraceptive methods with WHO Medical Eligibility Criteria of contraceptives and CDC modifications. It gives sound advice on selecting contraceptive methods for women with bleeding problems, previous ectopic pregnancy, mood and depressive disorders, hirsutism and acne, perimenopausal women, women with HIV and other STIs.
Contraception provides an essential guide to all gynecologists, family medicine physicians and health care workers who provide contraceptive advice.
