These include intrauterine devices and a new option that gets implanted into the arm and lasts up to three years.In this episode, Dr. Margot Rosenthal, a fifth-year obstetrics and gynaecology resident, explains the different contraception options, which choice is best, and what side effects to watch out for.She co-authored a practice article with Dr. Sarah McQuillan.
