Contraceptive Technology Update - 9 November 2019, Plymouth


  • Pregnancy
  • Contraception

Contraceptive technology: an update by themes more than by the methods

A. Things to be “unlearned”: that the COC taken by the outdated 21/7 regimen is, in the real world, a good choice in contraception.
B. Things to learn: new methods, and fresh angles on how to provide the old ones, including follow-up by “open house”.
C. Contraceptive choices:

1. for teenagers and 20s
2. for women over 40 and peri-menopausally
3. after pregnancy of any gestation
4. with low and high body mass
5. when there is no reliable LMP - the Proving Not Pregnant Protocol
6. when quick-starting and bridging, a new norm
7. at and after emergency contraception
8. when any method results in problematic bleeding: the “D Check-list”
9. during assorted diseases and several dis-eases
10. when there are potential drug interactions (by enzyme induction and more)
11. relating to pre- or peri-conception
12. summarised: 20+ messages which may change your practice (or not, if you were already up to speed!)
