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)

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)

Early history and Birth control movements[edit]

I just wanted to clarify the edits I made to this page, which were all included in the "History" section. I added some more details and examples of early birth control to the "Early history" subsection, specific to Medieval Europe, as I thought it was lacking and could use some more examples, particularly on the history of condoms. In the "Birth control movement" subsection, I added some more information about Margaret Sanger, including the location of the first birth control clinic, and her involvement in what is now known as Planned Parenthood. I also added information on the efforts of Presidents Johnson and Obama to further birth control access, as well as the FDA approving the first oral contraceptive, known as Enovid.

Implantation[edit]

Have restored "The are unlikely to affect implantation.[1]" which states "The evidence strongly supports disruption of ovulation as a mechanism of action. The data suggest that emergency contraceptives are unlikely to act by interfering with implantation"

This is better than a product insert IMO that says "Prescribing information: Ella; 12.1 Mechanism of action" (PDF). Silver Spring, Md.: FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). pp. 4–5. When taken immediately before ovulation is to occur, ella postpones follicular rupture. The likely primary mechanism of action of ulipristal acetate for emergency contraception is therefore inhibition or delay of ovulation; however, alterations to the endometrium that may affect implantation may also contribute to efficacy... The pharmacodynamics of ulipristal acetate depends on the timing of administration in the menstrual cycle. Administration in the mid-follicular phase causes inhibition of folliculogenesis and reduction of estradiol concentration. Administration at the time of the luteinizing hormone peak delays follicular rupture by 5 to 9 days. Dosing in the early luteal phase does not significantly delay endometrial maturation but decreases endometrial thickness by 0.6 ± 2.2 mm (mean ± SD)."

Agree... I also removed source based on non-MEDLINE indexed journal article from a journal associated with the "Catholic Medical Association" (?) as non-MEDRS. Zad68 16:42, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

Extended content

http://www.ancient.eu/article/835/ Birth control can provide many benefits. Birth control promotes safe sex because it can prevent unwanted pregnancies and make people more aware of what consequences can come from it. It also comes with some health benefits. Birth control can make periods lighter, reduce cramping [1], clear up acne [2], and it has even been proven to reduce the risk of certain cancers [3]. Birth control can also help reduce the teenage pregnancy rate. After the IUD came out the teen pregnancy rate in Colorado alone was cut in half within 5 years [4]. There are definitely some drawbacks to using birth control. It can cause users to gain weight[5], it can increase the possibility of having a stroke [6], and it can increase the chance in getting blood clots [7]. Because there are so many different forms of birth control, it can make it safer for different women if they can find one that does not effect their health in a bad way. Birth control is just like any other medicine because it provides services, but it also has possible side effects.

Not sure what is with that first link? Also the rest of this is poorly referenced. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 08:29, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
