Jacques and Cutler publish op-ed in response to Texas SB8 in Wisconsin State Journal

In response to a restrictive abortion law passed in Texas, known as SB8, UW Ob-Gyn faculty Laura Jacques, MD and Abigail Cutler, MD wrote an op-ed in the Wisconsin State Journal about what SB8 could mean for reproductive health care access in states across the country, including Wisconsin. (Since publication of their op-ed, a federal judge temporarily blocked enforcement of the law in Texas).

You can read the whole opinion piece here: Drs. Laura Jacques and Abigail Cutler: Texas abortion ban could happen here in Wisconsin.

Cutler talks about bleeding and Plan B in Insider

Some bleeding after using emergency contraception like Plan B is normal, but sometimes it can be a sign of early pregnancy. Abby Cutler, MD, family planning specialist in the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Academic Specialists in Ob-Gyn, talked about how to spot the difference and what to do if you suspect emergency contraception failed with Insider:

“Most people should expect their period within three weeks of taking Plan B, Cutler says. "If you don't get a period within 3 weeks, it's a good idea to take a home pregnancy test to make sure the pill worked," says Cutler.”
