  • Overview

    Our patients express a number of misperceptions about combined hormonal non-LARC contraceptives such as the contraceptive patch, vaginal rings, and oral contraceptive pills. How well do you explain the advantages and disadvantages of these different options to your patients? How often have you prescribed what appeared to be a good contraceptive method for your patients only to have them be dissatisfied and become nonadherent?

    Join Dr. Brooke Faught in this Women’s Health 2021 lecture as she tackles these issues and offers insights into how to discuss the full range of combined hormonal non-LARC contraceptive options with your patients using shared decision-making strategies. Remember, each patient’s needs, goals, and cultural background are important factors in a patient-centric approach to the choice of contraception.
