Abstract

Millions of women each year start or continue to use some type of hormonal contraceptive method. Choosing a method may be anxiety provoking. In this article, we review some of the latest advances in and options for hormonal contraception, including extended-dose oral contraceptives, the vaginal ring, injectable methods, and emergency contraception. Nurses can facilitate women's decision making for healthy reproductive options.
