Choosing a method of contraception isnt simply about preventing pregnancy, its also about making the best choice for your future, your lifestyle, your health and your peace of mind. Contraception Healthy Choices provides both women and men with the information they need to make that choice. Forms of contraception covered include condoms (male and female), progestogen-only injection, implants, diaphragms, cervical caps, intrauterine devices (IUDs), natural family planning, traditional methods and sterilisation. This second edition also provides an update on the contraceptive pill, a chapter on the increasingly popular vaginal ring, and new information on emergency contraception. There is also information on how pregnancy happens, how using condoms reduces the incidence of sexually transmitted infections, and abortion.
