Contraception : A User's Handbook, Paperback / softback Book


Recent developments in methods of contraception have presented women with a wider range of options than ever before.

At the same time, however, scare stories - particularly about the Pill - have spread anxiety and confusion. In this third edition of Contraception, Anne Szarewski and John Guillebaud assess all the evidence, including the new guidelines which were issued by the Committee of Safety of Medicines (CSM) in May 1999 following a review of the 1995scare stories.

They describe the latest methods, including new types of condoms, Persona, and Mirena, and cut through the conflicting information to give you the clearest and most reliable advice you will find anywhere. From reviews of previous editions: 'A model of clearly presented, unpatronising,up-to-the- minute information ... the current definitive book on the subject.' Vogue 'Excellent.' British Journal of Family Planning 'Essential reading for anyone thinking of changing their family planning method.' Woman 'this is the book to buy ...

Written by expert gynaecologists... with textbook clarity, it's one of the most comprehensive guides around... an invaluable book.' Health and Fitness
