Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The thoroughly updated Fourth Edition of this practical handbook is a current, reliable, and readable guide to the intelligent use of today's contraceptive options. The authors provide the essential information that clinicians and patients need to choose the best contraceptive method for the patient's age and medical, social, and personal characteristics. The book concisely covers all available drugs and devices, including emergency contraception and the clinical effects, placement, and removal of Implanon. Each contraceptive method is covered in a single chapter that includes history of the contraceptive, method of action, pharmacology (when applicable), contraindications, and use.
