Abstract

Oral contraceptives are not appropriate for all women and their efficacy is hindered by many factors, including adverse effects and patient compliance. In the past, the oral route was the most popular method for contraception. Today, the routes and methods of contraception are varied, ranging from hormonal and non-hormonal options to surgical procedures and over-the-counter products. Increased efficacy of all forms can be obtained through patient education; thus, the primary care physician should be knowledgeable on all available methods.
