Contraceptive Methods in Focus: IUDs, Implants, and Oral Contraceptives (Outlook, vol. 21, no. 1)

Despite an increase in demand and availability, access to contraceptive use remains a challenge to many due to a variety of barriers. For health care providers and counselors, providing the most up-to-date information concerning contraceptive choices is critical for ensuring clients are able to make the best decisions about their reproductive needs. This issue of Outlook addresses several topics related to contraceptive methods, including trends in contraceptive use, the underutilization of IUDs, the increase in options for contraceptive implants, combined oral contraceptives, and new options in hormonal contraception.
