Updated interim recommendations for contraceptive provision

A key strategy of the Society of Family Planning is to support clinicians providing evidence-based abortion and contraception care. We are pleased to release newly updated interim recommendations for contraceptive care during the COVID-19 pandemic. This 2021 update contains additional information about COVID-19 infection in pregnant people; barrier and self-administered injectable contraceptive methods; patient confidentiality; and associations between COVID-19 and thrombotic risk. 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.
