From reviews of the previous edition: 'Provides a wealth of information ... graphically illustrates the need for practitioners to be thoroughly knowledgeable.' Toni Belfield, Director of Information, Family Planning Association. The world's population is increasing dramatically. At levels over 7 billion, rising annually by over 83 million (with births outstripping deaths by a factor of c. 2.4) the toll this imbalance takes on the environment, developing economies and resources (healthcare, education, rates of poverty) and the lives of women in the poorer parts of the world is increasingly unsustainable. Even in the developed world there is still an unacceptably high rate of unplanned pregnancies, demonstrating that appropriate education at both local and global levels about the full range of available contraception is essential. Using a highly accessible question-and-answer format, John Guillebaud and Anne MacGregor seek to ensure everything needed for good family planning practice is here in this book. Now in its seventh edition and online via ExpertConsult, Contraception: Your Questions Answered remains the market-leading, one-stop resource for family planning professionals worldwide. Question and answer format Important information boxes Unwanted side effects boxes Frequent patient questions at the end of relevant chapters Management advice Follow-up advice Intermittent quizzes for CPD portfolio purposes Now on ExpertConsult

"Let's get one thing very clear -- there are no stupid questions in sex." Ever since Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, people have been curious about sex: Do women really care about size? Is there any truth to the blue balls rumor? Could I get HIV from someone performing oral sex on me? Why do guys like to watch porn so much? In Sexpertise, Dr. Robin Sawyer, who teaches human sexuality at the University of Maryland, takes the most-asked questions about sex from his enormously popular course and provides scientifically accurate yet honest, entertaining, and most of all, useful answers. From flirting and fetishes to staying power and STDs -- no topic is too embarrassing or off-limits to explore. Whether read cover to cover or as a go-to guide when particular questions arise, Sexpertise delivers all the knowledge you need to separate the truth about sex from its myths and urban legends, and in turn become a true sexpert.

What birth control method is most reliable? Can contraceptives protect me from AIDS? How can I choose the method that's best for me? Finding the answers to these and other questions about birth control can be tough. On the one hand, today's sexually active person has many contraceptive options. On the other hand, each option has pluses and minuses that must be weighed. For teenagers especially, asking questions about birth control can be awkward and difficult. Yet teenagers may be in greatest need of the facts. While there is no "right" method for everyone, The Whole Truth About Contraception is the right book for anyone making decisions about contraception--men and women, from teenagers to middle-agers. It illustrates male and female anatomy and explains how conception occurs. The book carefully describes the birth control methods available today: barrier (such as condoms and diaphragms), hormonal (the Pill and Norplant), intrauterine devices, surgical sterilization, and other approaches such as the "rhythm" method and breastfeeding as a contraceptive. For each method the authors discuss how well it prevents pregnancy, its potential effects on the user's health, and common problems. Illustrated "how to" sections are provided, and the authors comment on how each method typically affects sexual experience. The book also discusses how birth control products can be obtained and their cost. Precautions, tips on usage, and other features throughout the book will help each reader decide what type of contraception is best for his or her age, personal preferences, and situation in life. The Whole Truth About Contraception gives up-to-date information on new products, such as the female condom and the nonlatex male condom. The book provides details about contraception and sexually transmitted diseases, with an emphasis on AIDS. Also offered is an expanded discussion of "emergency" contraception, designed for use after unprotected sex. The book includes a full and factual discussion of abortion. Contraception may be the most important and deeply personal choice anyone has to make. This book provides the straight facts that will make the decision easier--and the results better for everyone.
