Providers, patients differ on birth control choices

By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) – When women who are family planning experts need to pick a birth control method for themselves, what do they generally choose? About 42 percent of the family planning experts in the study used long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) – a choice made by only about 12 percent of women in the general population. This doesn’t mean there’s a single correct choice for birth control, said Lisa Stern, the study’s lead author from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in New York City. Women should “feel empowered to access information and the resources they need to obtain birth control that’s right for them,” Stern said.
