W National Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 2015 Case 1: Angela Angela is a 16-year-old young woman who makes an appointment to go on birth control. Her intake form indicates that she uses condoms most of the time. What additional information do you need from this patient?

Medical History Menstrual history Age at menarche Date of LMP Duration of menses Regularity/spotting Cycle length Cramps and impact on activities History of PE, DVT, MI,

migraine with aura or focal neurologic deficit Personal or family history of blood clots If affirmative, work-up for clotting disorder Prior experiences with contraception Case: Angela Angela is a little unsure of her medical history. She does not think anyone in her family has a history of blood clots. What questions do you ask before beginning

contraception counseling? Sexual Health History Sexual orientation and gender identity History of vaginal, oral, anal sex Age at coitarche Number and genders of partners Condom and contraception use Pregnancy history History of STIs Sexual satisfaction

History of survival, unwanted or coerced sex Childbearing plans Case: Angela Angela has had sex 3 times with her current boyfriend and used condoms during 2 of those three encounters. What did she do well? Affirmation And Education Used condoms at least 2 of 3 times! Came in to discuss birth control methods Give positive reinforcement whenever possible

7 days Starting Contraception After UPA EC U.S. Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use, 2016 Start or resume hormonal contraception NO SOONER than 5 days after use of UPA Any nonhormonal contraceptive method can be started immediately after the use of UPA. For methods requiring a visit to a health care provider, such as Depo, implants, and IUDs, starting the method at the time of UPA use may be considered; the risk that the regular contraceptive method might decrease the effectiveness of UPA must be weighed against the risk of not starting a regular hormonal contraceptive method. Advise a pregnancy test if she does not have a withdrawal bleed within 3 weeks.

*With hormonal methods: abstain/use back-up protection for 7 days after restarting contraception Case: Angela Angela informs you that she last had unprotected sex two weeks ago.

misperceptions about the risks associated with contraception Teens choices are unnecessarily limited DMPA and Bone: Much Ado about Nothing! Significant bone loss during pregnancy (3-5%) & breastfeeding (4-5%) Bone loss from DMPA similar. Most pronounced in first 1-2 years (3-5%) and then stabilizes (5% at 4.5 years). Bone loss is temporary and reversible.

Duration of use does not impact recovery. Bone loss associated with DMPA has never been shown to increase risk of fracture or any other clinical outcome. DMPA and Bone: Take Home Messages Women should be informed that the use of DMPA is associated with a slight decrease in BMD, which is reversible There should be no limit to the length of time that DMPA is used regardless of

a womans age Measuring BMD among DMPA users is not recommended Guilbert, E.R et al. Contraception 2009;79: 167-177 Contraception and Weight Gain Not all DMPA users gain weight 25% of users gain excessive weight Other users gain minimal weight Early weight gain at 6 months predicts excessive weight gain (avg. 15 lbs more over 3 years)
