Translating Patient Preferences and Needs into Contraceptive Method Options ★

It is important to ask patients what they want or need from their contraceptive method during counseling. This handout is intended to help providers and counselors tailor their counseling and education based on the patient’s preferences toward their contraceptive method. Providers should share the knowledge of how patient preferences translate into method options and then create the space for the patient to deliberate and decide what matters most to them in selecting their method(s). The handout is intended for providers and counselors to study, it is not intended to be patient-facing due to its length.
