We regularly develop methodologically rigorous, evidence-based clinical guidance based on existing medical literature and best practice. They should not be construed as prescribing exclusive courses of treatment or procedures relating to any clinical matter. We revise this guidance as needed. We also endorse guidelines produced by others if the guidance meets our rigorous standards.

The Society’s Clinical Affairs Committee oversees clinical guidance by prioritizing topics, selecting authors, and reviewing and approving each document before it is submitted for publication in Contraception. More information about the Committee’s procedures and the types of clinical guidance produced by the Society is available in our author instructions.

To suggest a topic for new clinical guidance, please contact Clinical@SocietyFP.org.
