This issue focuses primarily on contraception, with comments provided by Dr Christine Roke from Family Planning.
Highlights include a study of an extended 24-day regimen of a drospirenone-containing COC, a review of the long term efficacy of IUDs, and an assessment of the prevalence of uterine perforation associated with their use. We also include an interesting survey of faecal and urinary incontinence after childbirth, and a NZ study outlining the difficulties some young Māori women have finding a lead maternity carer.
