A key strategy of the Society of Family Planning is to support clinicians providing evidence based abortion and contraception care. At this unprecedented moment, rapid response to emerging issues in clinical care is needed. We are pleased to release updated interim recommendations for contraceptive care during the COVID-19 pandemic. The update addresses contraceptive method considerations in light of recent reports of thromboembolism associated with COVID-19 infection. Recommendations are based on the best available evidence at the time of writing, expert opinion, and community feedback.
We will continue to revise this guidance in the coming months. Your comments are welcome and encouraged. Please email HLange@SocietyFP.org to submit feedback.
