Avoid Estrogen-Containing Contraceptives in Women With Certain Conditions
You'll have more opportunity to help women with chronic conditions choose hormonal contraception...due to the latest guidelines.
Consider medical conditions as one piece of the puzzle when recommending contraceptives...in addition to efficacy, adherence, side effects, etc.
Weigh your patient's clot and CV risk. Contraceptives with estrogen (combo OCs, patch, ring) have a higher risk than progestin-only forms...levonorgestrel intrauterine system (Mirena, etc), depot medroxyprogesterone (Depo-Provera, etc), or the "minipill" (Micronor, etc).
