Abstract

Abstract Contraceptive choices are expanding and new methods are becoming more widely available. New delivery systems for hormones have been added and there have been refinements of older methods, improving reliability and user friendliness. More choices remain open to women than to men. This paper will look at the ‘menu’ for reversible methods and some of the criteria for selection. Male and female sterilisation are used extensively when families are complete, but will not be discussed here. This discussion will attempt to put the client or patient in the foreground.
