some of the most important choices you must make as a woman are those for
which you may be least prepared.Your decisions about sexual activity, contraception,family
planning, and reproductive health can affect your life in profound ways. Ideally you
should make these choices, sometimes in conjunction with your doctor or health care
provider, based on accurate information and thoughtful consideration.

For the purposes of excluding pregnancy, the CEU would advise that hormonal, intrauterine
and barrier methods can be considered reliable providing they have been used consistently
and correctly on every incidence of intercourse. This should be assessed on an individual
Quick starting may also mean starting a method immediately after the administration of
emergency contraception (EC). In this situation there is a possibility of EC failure and
pregnancy, therefore such practice would always be outside the licence of hormonal
Women who are financially, materially or socially dependent on men may have limited power to
exercise control in relationships, such as negotiating the use of condoms during sex. Social
expectations about how women should behave can place women in subordinate roles and
increase their risk of being sexually assaulted, contracting STIs and having unwanted
pregnancies, and also limit their access to SRH services.
The unmet need for family planning refers to the percentage of women
between the ages of 15-49 who are married or in a union, and who do not
want another birth, but are not using contraception. There is a great need to
increase adolescent’s access to comprehensive, age-appropriate family
planning services and information in the Pacific. Available data indicates that
between 11% and 52% of Pacific women between 15-19 years old who are
married or are in civil unions have an unmet need for family planning. Less
than 20% of girls aged 15-19 and less than half of adolescent boys...
IVF and related treatments (GIFT and ZIFT, see below) are the most invasive ART treatments.
Usually women try other methods first, and turn to IVF when those methods have not succeeded
in pregnancy or live birth. One percent of babies in the US are born using IVF. Unlike AI,
fertilization takes place outside the woman’s body in which eggs (retrieved from the woman
trying to get pregnant or from an egg donor) are fertilized with sperm (from a partner or donor)
in a Petri dish.
The choice of a specific oral contraceptive should be predicated on the progestational component, as progestins vary in their suppressive effect on SHBG levels and in their androgenic potential. Ethynodiol diacetate has relatively low androgenic potential, whereas progestins such as norgestrel and levonorgestrel are particularly androgenic, as judged from their attenuation of the estrogen-induced increase in SHBG. Norgestimate exemplifies the newer generation of progestins that are virtually nonandrogenic.
The basic human right of self-determination is meaningless for women
who do not have the ability to control reproduction. Devoting an issue of
this journal to contraception makes sense at this time when the unintended
pregnancy rate in the United States continues to hover at 50%. Every
woman knows whether it is the right time for her to bear a child and for
her and her family to commit the considerable personal and financial resources
necessary for raising that child. But the impact of contraception
transcends the importance of individual choice.
There was no specific policy or set of guidelines for dealing with reproductive choice among HIV-infected
individuals. Policymakers noted concern about the lack of guidelines, as well as about insufficient training
in contraception, inadequate dual method counselling and the scant reference made to emergency
contraception. Providers were unaware of World Health Organization guidelines on contraception for HIV-
Only two studies investigated barriers to use of HU. Perceived efficacy and perceived
safety of HU had the largest influence on patients' (or parents' ) choice to use HU.
Providers reported barriers to be patient concerns about side effects; and their own
concerns about HU in older patients, patient compliance, lack of contraception, side
effects and carcinogenic potential, doubts about effectiveness, and concern about costs.
Conclusions. HU is efficacious in children and adults with SCD; with an increase in Hb
F%, and reduction in hospitalizations and pain crises.
Utilization of RCH services and their linkages with basic demographic parameters and
socioeconomic developmental factors have often been argued and highlighted in the theoretical
and empirical literature. The NPP-2000 also affirms the provision of quality RCH services and
an informed choice of contraception alongwith women empowerment characterized by
improvements in women's educational standards, working conditions and autonomy.
