Essential Information for Men and Women
Birth Control 2016
A quick-read reference that could save your life
During years of providing healthcare as an emergency physician I found both men and women lacked important information related to sexual health and contraception. These topics are often not discussed with knowledgeable people and misinformation is believed. Internet sources may not be accurate. Health information provided in schools is incomplete.
Medical information in this booklet is the science-based biology of reproduction and the latest contraceptive options for men and women. Details include a factual basis for discussing sexuality with partners and maturing children.
Responsible sexual practices must include a solid comprehension of contraception to prevent unplanned pregnancies and avoiding sexually transmitted diseases. Some STDs are curable, some are not. Some of them could kill you. Learn about STDs, their treatment and prevention.
Rape is common and often unreported. Learn safety actions to avoid assault, but if you are assaulted, learn what to do to increase the likelihood of prosecution.
