Description

Contraception: Science and Practice serves as a guidebook for elucidating the science of contraception, and at the same time for utilizing the methods better to meet human needs. Organized into 17 chapters, this book first explores the world view on birth control, as well as the complications of combined oral contraception. Subsequent chapters show the relationship between oral contraception and cancer; practical prescribing of the combined oral contraceptive pill; the progestogen-only pill; and the systemic hormonal contraception by non-oral routes. Other chapters elucidate postcoital contraception; intrauterine contraceptive devices; male and female barrier contraceptive methods; natural family planning; and contraception for the older woman. Cervical ripening prior to termination of pregnancy; abortion; female sterilization and its reversal; vasectomy and its reversal; and progress towards a systemic male contraceptive are also discussed. This book will be valuable to physicians engaged in teaching or research in birth-control techniques, as well as a reference book and resource for many others.
