Update on new contraceptive choices
Swica Y, Westhoff C

Abstract Objective: To review new contraceptive methods and to provide information to facilitate informed decision making with regard to choosing contraception. Methods: Qualitative review of the literature. Results: An assortment of new methods offer a broad variety of contraceptive choices. Hormonal methods include the transdermal patch, vaginal ring, extended-regimen and drospirenone-containing oral contraceptive pills, Plan B emergency contraception, hormonal injection and implant, and the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system. Sterilization via Essure placement and new barrier devices are also discussed. Provision of information on effectiveness and elicitation of patient preferences are the most important goals in contraceptive counseling. Conclusions: Current contraceptive methods are generally safe and easy to use. Patients need to have an accurate understanding of risks to make an informed choice.
