FSRH updates contraception guideline for women over 40

The Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (FSRH) has updated its guideline on contraception for women aged over 40 years.  

The guideline was developed with a team of experts in the relevant fields and has been extensively peer reviewed in accordance with methodology used for developing FSRH Clinical Guidelines. The guidance is intended for use by health professionals working in SRH, general practice and obstetric and gynaecology settings.

It covers contraception: when it is needed, what is available, the suitability and safety of each method, how it should be used and when it can be stopped.

Topics such as assisted reproductive technology (ART), managing menopause and alternative treatments for hormone replacement therapy are not within the scope of this guideline.

You can download the guideline here.

The FSRH is holding a webinar on the guideline on 27 September. Click here for more details.
