Abstract

Oral contraceptives are commonly chosen methods whose contraceptive effectiveness is very user-dependent. Approaches to significantly improving oral contraceptive continuation have been largely unsuccessful. Long-acting reversible methods are the most highly effective reversible contraceptives, with the highest continuation rates, and should be the first-line methods offered to reproductive-aged women.
