In the United States, approximately 62% of women aged 15 to 44 years use birth control on a regular basis.2 Women have an array of contraceptive options from which to choose. For some patients, permanent sterilization may be the best choice. For others, a reversible contraceptive option could be more appropriate.
Reversible contraceptive options may include the following:
(eg, condoms, cervical caps, contraceptive sponges, diaphragms)
(note that hormonal and nonhormonal IUDs are available)
Female patients may ask for your guidance regarding safe and effective prevention of pregnancy. They also may request your assistance with choosing a contraceptive product that is appropriate for their needs and preferences.
