The New Age of Contraception

The New Age of Contraception

For many years the oral contraceptive pill was the first choice for women looking for reliable and safe contraception and it remains a good choice for many. It was developed in the 1960s but over the last 10 years or so the appearance of various Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives (or LARCS) has begun to replace their position as the best choice for women of all reproductive ages. The World Health Organisation (WHO) and various other professional bodies now recommend LARCs as first line contraception for young women.
