Extractions: @import "../styles/advanced.css"; Skip navigation Many people accept that a contraceptive method is a bit like adverts seen for wood varnish on the TV - it does just what it says on the tin! We all accept that there will be some failures, but what are the relative failure rates for different methods? Bandolier has been digging for useful evidence on contraceptive methods. Evidence on failure rates is hard to come by. A series of estimates are summarised in a cost effectiveness paper , and the results are given in the Table both as the annual percentage of failure, and as the number of women (out of 10,000) who would become pregnant in one year using particular methods. Information on the combined oral contraceptive pill from a summary of clinical trials  is also given. Method Failure rate (%) Pregnancies per 10,000 women per year

Extractions: Teaching the Faith Why Not Contraception George Sim Johnston Humanae vitae than Calcutta or Shanghai. The challenge is to put the cultural coordinates back to where they were seventy years ago. Until 1930, not only did every Christian denomination teach that contraception is wrong, but even the mainstream of media and politics did not approve of it. The ubiquitous state laws against selling birth control devices were the work of Protestant, not Catholic, legislatures. When, at the Lambeth Conference in 1930, the Anglican Church became the first Christian body to change its mind about contraception, the Washington Post was as indignant as Pope Pius XI. It seemed self-evident to at least a plurality of Christians that the deliberate obstruction of the life-making potential of sex is gravely disordered. Sex, the most imperious of instincts, is always looking for opportunities to exploit, and this was provided by the Anglican bishops at Lambeth, who had previously condemned artificial birth control in 1908 and 1920. Commenting on their guarded endorsement of contraception, T. S. Eliot wrote presciently about subsequent pastoral experience: " to allow that each couple should take counsel only if perplexed in mind is almost to surrender the whole citadel of the Church. It is ten to one, considering the extreme disengenuity of humanity, which ought to be patent after so many thousand years, that only a very small minority will be "perplexed"; and in view of the words of the bishops it is ten to one that the honest minority which takes competent advice (and I observe that the order of words is

Extractions: Who Is Edith Stein? The Psychology of Contraception Theological Perspective Research Programs ... Search ESF Who We Are A New Vision For the last few years a new vision of woman has been unfolding - the evolving dream of Dr. Dominic Pedulla, the founding physician of The Edith Stein Foundation (ESF). Asked in 1994 to give a talk on heart disease for women, his preparatory research unexpectedly led to a foundational insight about women's health. Inspired by the deep psychological intuitions of the great feminist transcultural heroine and Saint, Edith Stein, Dr. Pedulla for the first time began to suspect contraception as the most important and overlooked factor in a host of medical and social conditions afflicting the modern woman. Contraception and The Heart For several years Dr. Pedulla observed that many young women often suffered from serious cardiac symptoms despite otherwise reassuring test results. These women were often profoundly distressed and suffered a great deal of anxiety. It was not until he began routinely asking about birth control practices that a causal connection began to be considered. Dr. Pedulla knows now from his own practice experience that all contraceptives - whether condoms, IUD's, pills, injections, or tubal ligation surgeries - are capable of causing this 'contraception syndrome.'
Extractions: At the Scarleteen boards, we get a lot of questions from teens who are wondering if there's anything to be done to avoid pregnancy after unprotected intercourse, whether it's from a broken condom or from not using a condom in the first place. Regardless of how it happened, there is something that can reduce the risk of pregnancy greatly as long as it's done within 100 hours of the unprotected sexual activity. ECPs act in exactly the same way as standard oral contraceptives, except that the dosage is much higher. Depending on when in your cycle you take them, ECPs can delay or prevent ovulation, inhibit transport of either the egg or sperm, prevent fertilization of the egg from occurring, or alter the lining of the uterus in such a way as to make implantation of a fertilized egg impossible. According to the American Medical Association, based on practice guidelines and information from the FDA and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the "effectiveness rate is likely to be at least a 75% reduction in the expected rate of pregnancy. For example, if 100 women have intercourse in the middle 2 weeks of their cycle, approximately 8 will become pregnant; with emergency contraception, this number is reduced to 2."

Extractions: An almost universal consensus exists among governments, international institutions, the worlds religions, and the public: Responsible family planning includes the basic right of couples to decide freely the number and spacing of their children, and to have the information, education, and means to do so. That consensus includes the belief that couples, as moral agents, should be informed about and be able to voluntarily choose among the widest range of safe medical contraceptives and other methods, such as abstinence, that reduce the possibility of pregnancy. The official leadership of the Catholic church stands outside of this consensus. It continuesin Catholic schools and health care institutions, and in official pronouncementsto condemn the use of contraceptives as unnatural and sinful. Unfortunately, it is also increasingly active in opposing international and national public policies that would make contraceptives safer, more available, more effective, and a matter to be decided by individual conscience. Given these efforts by the Catholic hierarchy, it is critical that policy makers and others understand that broad support exists among Catholics for change in church teachings regarding contraception, and for public policies that respect individual conscience and promote the common good.

Extractions: On Friday, August 26, the Federal Food and Drug Administration once again delayed its decision to make Plan B emergency contraception available over-the-counter for all women. The FDA had promised a decision on making Plan B available over-the-counter by September 1.The agency agreed that women 17 years of age and older could safely take the drug without a doctor's advice. However, they stated that girls 16 years of age and younger should only be given the drug with a doctor's prescription. A public comment period has been set to discuss the dual-label issues further. On August 4, New York Governor George Pataki vetoed the Unintended Pregnancy Prevention Act. The legislation would have increased the availability of emergency contraception to women by enabling pharmacists and nurse to dispense this safe and effective medication through collaborative agreements with physicians.
