About these proceedings


Contraceptives have always provided ground for controversy. This book describes and discusses latest findings concerning the advantages as well as hazard and risk factors of contraception. The clinical impact of oral contraceptives on metabolism is particularly highlighted. In addition, behavioral methods, intrauterine devices, implants and modern approaches in animal and clinical research in the field of immunization against pregnancy are considered. Last, but not least, the book summarizes the complex ethical, religious and political aspects of family planning and contraception.
