Higgins authors chapter in new edition of Contraceptive Technology

Division of Reproductive and Population Health and UW Collaborative for Reproductive Health Director Jenny Higgins, PhD, MPH, co-authored the sixth chapter in the 22nd edition of Contraceptive Technology. Co-authors of the chapter include Patty Cason, MS, FNP-PC, Jessica N. Sanders, PhD, MSPH.

In Chapter Six, “Sexuality and Contraception,” Higgins and co-authors identified different contraceptive methods and their impacts on a patient’s sex life. They also discuss sexual acceptability of contraception and how to provide patient-centered care in conversations around sexuality and contraception.

Contraceptive Technology provides students and experts in obstetrics and gynecology with information and updates around contraceptive use and related reproductive health issues. The newest edition focuses on developments in the field, especially in the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned.
