- One in three women currently cannot access contraception from their preferred provider
- Combined oral contraceptives (COCs) compare favourably in terms of effectiveness to other birth control methods but efficacy is reduced if not used correctly and consistently
- Long acting reversible contraception (LARC) is more effective than COCs and less impacted by user error. Patients must be made aware of this option in consultations
- Extra care is needed with some patient groups when it comes to establishing consent
