Description

From reviews of the previous edition:

‘Bought this one as an update to the older version I have. The Q&A format is so easy to use. You could just read it but it is even better as a problem solving tool- anyone who provides contraceptive services should have a copy.’

‘I'm a GP trainee doing obstetrics and gynaecology rotation and this book is invaluable in providing me with answers to common and not so common questions that patients come in with. Very happy with this purchase.’

‘The bible for all medical practitioners regarding contraception. Very easy to use and find what you want.’

‘Perfect book to have at hand for either quick revision or brief check when working in family planning. Easy to read with good explanations that can be memorised with very little effort.’

‘Very well-known book from the guru of contraception! A must-have guide for the tricky subject of contraception for GPs.’

‘I have owned previous editions of this book, which continues to be an excellent resource. Clearly written and eminently readable, I would recommend this to all (not just Doctors).’

‘Perfect book to have at hand for either quick revision or brief check when working in family planning. Easy to read with good explanations that can be memorised with very little effort.’

‘Bought this book whilst doing a family planning course and now, in practice, it has become my bible. Full of information, easy to understand, clear and concise. Helps with problem-solving and also contains relevant physiology. Recommended for GPs, nurse practitioners, midwives, school nurses and anyone with an interest in family planning.’
