Planned parenthood - and its associated reproductive and sexual healthcare issues - has massive socioeconomic and demographic consequences worldwide. Modern contraception played a major role in the emancipation of women and has huge potential for a sustainable future world population. Yet it is a medical topic which always raises controversy, with serious ethical, religious and cultural overtones. This is an authoritative guide for all those working in reproductive healthcare. Highly practical, evidence-based, with enough detail to inform effective clinical practice, the book is structured on a lifestage approach, mirroring everyday experience of practitioners. All forms of contraceptives are covered in detail, with guidance on prescribing, the advantages and disadvantages of various techniques, and possible complications. The wider field of reproductive healthcare including subfertility and sexual assault are also covered. An ideal guide to contraception for trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology, primary care physicians and nurse-practitioners.

'Essential reading for any health professional working in sexual and reproductive health, as well as those training and those needing to refresh their knowledge in this area.' Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care
'This should have been titled 'All you ever wanted to know about the issues around contraception'. This is a relatively unique book in that it is the first book I have read that covers libido and sexual drive as well as discussing the issues around sex and contraception at different stages of life ... I found this book very interesting and will keep it to use as a handy reference book for the facts behind contraception, some of which are not usually covered.' The Obstetrician and Gynaecologist
