The FactsBook - 1990
This book covers all currently available methods of contraception, including sterilization and abortion, in a readable and accurate fashion. The second edition has been updated and expanded to include contraception for men and potential contraception of the future. New information is provided on the oral contraceptive pill and the changing emphasis on barrier contraceptives in light of the AIDS epidemic. Each method is described thoroughly, and cultural and other influences on contraceptive choice are put in context. The chapter on abortion provides coverage of the complex legal issues surrounding the area. The volume is essential reading for those who wish to use contraception intelligently. It will also have an important role for a wide range of educational purposes.
