Contraception and Family planning. What are the options and the reasons people might have for taking them.

Dr Stuart joined Mike with a very special guest, his wonderful wife Dr Eleanor Arbuckle to bring a female perspective to this topic. Reasons for taking contraception:

1.Wanting to plan a family and being in control of the process.

2.Heavy or Painful Periods (especially if it’s leading to other problems like iron deficiency or anaemia.)

3. Being in control of your periods. If you’ve got a lot going on in your life or you’re tired and dealing with a medical condition, you might want to skip a period to every couple of months)

“There’s lots and lots of different types (of contraception) but there are only 3 that are really for men and the rest are unfortunately the burden of the women, which is grossly unfair to be totally honest and hopefully in time that balance will shift.”
