Prevention of STIs[edit]

I removed the references to prevention of STI's in the summary paragraph. The two goals -- prevention of both pregnancy and STIs -- are commonly mentioned in popular literature, but the topic of this article is not STI prevention. I added this as an beneficial side effect of barrier methods.deisenbe (talk) 11:37, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

There are methods other than barrier methods that prevent preg and STIs. Moved paragraphs. Other content you added needs refs.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 14:21, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Video[edit]

Contraception – How to Prevent Unwanted Pregnancy

We have a new video. Typically my understanding is that we should not have more than the infobox in the lead. Others thoughts on placement? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) (if I write on your page reply on mine) 11:31, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Have placed in the "methods" section to keep the lead from getting too cluttered. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 04:45, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Vasalgel and justicia gendarussa[edit]

What is the status of male birth control treatments Vasalgel and j. gendarussa? The section on male birth control research mentions a lot of possibilities which are a lot less further along. 97.118.101.242 (talk) 17:11, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

We have a sub article on Male contraception. Do we have good refs for the above per WP:MEDRS? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 01:18, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Vasalgel is the same as RISUG which we discuss. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 01:33, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Text[edit]

Not sure about this text "Contraception was originally prohibited in the late 19th century and the eugenic movement played a large role in it being legalized. The birth control movement meant different things to different groups of people. To white women it was liberating them from gender stereotypes and compulsory childbearing, but to Black Americans, the poor, and immigrants, birth control was pushed onto them for the purpose of reducing an unwanted population. [1]"

Category:Ethically disputed practices[edit]

Concerned about this category. Religions are ethically disputed and I do not see them on the list. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:01, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

Per WP:CATDEF a category should be a defining charateristic of the article topic. While there's a very brief mention of ethics, it isn't supported as a defining characteristic, so the category should not be applied. Zad68 22:11, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
