AB  - Modern contraceptives are very effective when used correctly and, thus, effective
      counseling regarding contraceptive options and provision of resources to increase
      access are key components of adolescent health care. Regardless of a patient's
      age or previous sexual activity, the obstetrician-gynecologist routinely should
      address her contraceptive needs, expectations, and concerns.
      Obstetrician-gynecologists should be aware of and be prepared to address the most
      common misperceptions about contraceptive methods in a way that is age
      appropriate and compatible with the patient's health literacy. The American
      College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that discussions about
      contraception begin with information on the most effective methods first.
      Emergency contraception routinely should be included in discussions about
      contraception, including access issues. Moreover, the American College of
      Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends that obstetrician-gynecologists work
      with their office staff to establish office procedures and routines that
      safeguard the privacy of adolescent patients whenever possible. Adolescents'
      right of refusal for initiating or discontinuing a method should be addressed by 
      obstetrician-gynecologists. At no time should an adolescent patient be forced to 
      use a method chosen by someone other than herself, including a parent, guardian, 
      partner, or health care provider. The initial encounter and follow-up visits
      should include continual reassessment of sexual concerns, behavior,
      relationships, prevention strategies, and testing and treatment for sexually
      transmitted infections per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's
