Dear SFP fellows and colleagues,

As you may know, the Society of Family Planning publishes clinical guidelines which are prepared by SFP fellows, reviewed by the SFP Scientific Committee, and approved by the SFP Board of Directors. SFP’s clinical guidelines reflect a thorough review of published literature and emerging clinical and scientific advances, and are subject to change.

We are thrilled to announce the release of a new guideline, Surgical abortion prior to 7 weeks of gestation, by E. Steve Lichtenberg, MD, MPH and Maureen Paul, MD, MPH. This guideline will be published in the July 2013 issue of Contraception.

I would also like to draw your attention to another SFP clinical guideline, Management of postabortion hemorrhage, by Jennifer Kerns, MD, MPH and Jody Steinauer, MD, MAS. This guideline was published in the March 2013 issue of Contraception.

You can view all of the previously published SFP clinical guidelines on our website.

Congratulations and thank you to the authors and reviewers of the guidelines.

Best regards,

Lauren Bruce signature
