This is the new edition of Professor James Owen Drife's elegantly illustrated, full-color, large-format booklet explaining the true modern-day risks and benefits of low-dose combined oral contraceptives. It cites over 70 medical and scientific references in presenting up-to-date information that often disagrees with early studies and with reports in the lay press. It also documents the non-contraceptive benefits of the pill-benefits that have received little publicity but are important to women's health. The book's five main sections cover human fertility and contraceptives, the clinical pharmacology of oral contraceptives, and their risks, benefits, and controversies. Color photographs and figures highlight the key points of each chapter to help make this an exceptionally readable and informative work for physicians and their patients. Though lavishly produced, the book is priced low for consumers.
