Obstetrics & Gynecology: Contraception

by Nozer Sheriar, Mala Arora, Paul D Blumenthal, Ritu Joshi

The burden of unintended pregnancies is borne not only by the woman but also by the family and by society at large. This influences the maternal mortality rate directly and indirectly related to induced abortions; it influences the infant mortality rate due to maternal neglect and robs the family unit of its harmony. Hence, unintended pregnancies pose a serious public health issue. This book “World Clinics Obstetrics and Gynecology Contraception” is trying to increase awareness as well as to make available a choice of contraceptives. Women are most receptive to counseling during the postabortion and postpartum phase. This should be followed up by the easy availability of affordable contraceptives at their doorstep. World population is increasing by 1.14% per year and is currently 7 billion. If not checked, it will outstrip the natural resources of our planet. This book is an endeavor to integrate knowledge and current research in the field of contraception for the medical practitioners.
