A recent publication (Koch et al 2015) claimed that Mexican states with more restrictive abortion laws had lower levels of maternal mortality. Our objectives are to replicate the analysis, re-analyze the data, and offer a critique of the key flaws of the Koch study. (Source: Contraception)

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 22:00:00 +0100 | Contraception
Mandatory employer-based insurance coverage of contraception in the U.S. has been a controversial component of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Prior research has examined the cost effectiveness of contraception in general; however, no studies have developed a formal decision-model in the context of the new ACA provisions. As such, this study aims to estimate the relative cost effectiveness of insurance coverage of contraception under employer-sponsored insurance coverage taking into consideration newer regulations allowing for religious exemptions.

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 22:00:00 +0100 | Contraception
Related to concerns about the role of obesity in the efficacy of contraceptive drugs, a review of the literature was carried out in regard to the pharmacokinetics of ethinyl estradiol and various progestins given by various routes of administration. Most studies show that obese women exhibit modestly lower plasma concentrations of these drugs (circa 30%) when given the same doses as normal weight women. While the mechanism is uncertain, precedence in the literature suggests that this is due to body weight-related differences in metabolism rates. (Source: Contraception)

For more than 20 years, the World Health Organization's Department of Reproductive Health, in collaboration with its network of international partners, has issued evidence-based guidance on the safety of various contraceptive methods for women and men with particular medical conditions or personal characteristics. This guidance, the medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use or MEC, offers national family planning programs a comprehensive set of recommendations on whether a woman or man is eligible or not to use a particular contraceptive method.

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 22:00:00 +0100 | Contraception
In 1983, abortion without restriction as to reason was legalized in Turkey. However, at an international conference in 2012, the Prime Minister condemned abortion and announced his intent to draft restrictive abortion legislation. As a result of public outcry and protests, the law was not enacted, but media reports suggest that barriers to abortion access have since worsened. (Source: Contraception)
