To make an informed decision about contraceptives, one needs accurate, current data about the available methods. This book, a revised edition of The Contraceptive Handbook (Consumer Reports, 1992) by the same authors, provides the latest information about all forms of contraception and their safety, effectiveness, and side effects. The authors discuss male and female reproductive anatomy and physiology as well as barrier, hormonal, intrauterine, surgical, and natural methods. They include the new female condom, emergency postcoital contraception, and low-dose pills. Abortion and birth control while breast-feeding are also covered. Including information about cost, the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, choosing practitioners, and the proper use of the various methods makes this an extremely useful source. An extensive bibliography of scientific and lay literature appears as well. More current and less technical than the latest edition of Contraceptive Technology (Irvington, 1994. 16th ed.); highly recommended for all collections.?Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L., Cal.
