A focus on the birth control pill

Visit HealthChoicesFirst – Contraception for some short video segments in which I am discussing the birth control pill. These are posted on the HealthChoicesFirst website. These 2 minute videos answer more specific questions about the birth control pill, including:

What are Common vs. Rare Risks with the Pill?

Non-Contraceptive Benefits of the Pill

Risk Assessments with the Pill

The Pill as a Contraceptive Choice

Today’s Risks for the Birth Control Pill

Pill Talk With Your Doc

Check out our webcast – Pill Talk With Your Doc

 

Pill Talk With Your Doc is one of my most recent projects that takes advantage of social media in health education. In the webinar featured on the site, I explain the most recent guidelines on the risks and benefits of oral contraceptives from the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGC). These guidelines were given out to Canadian doctors by the SOGC and help set the standards by which doctors practice.

Pill Talk With Your Doc is a patient education initiative between physicians and medical students from across Canada, in collaboration with the Federation of Medical Women of Canada (FMWC). This website is dedicated to presenting you with accurate, credible information to help you make an informed choice about your contraceptive options.
