Welcome back. I have had a few weeks off and this is the first podcast for a while.
I have invited Dr Penny Wilson – our resident GP / Gynae / Women’s health expert back onto the podcast to discuss her approach to the common presentation of contraception counselling. We also discuss the recent controversy around the risk of DVT or PE with some of the newer combined OCPs.
This is really aimed at the GPs in training or those who occasionally get involved in contraceptive counselling.
Penny mentions a number of trials and online resources to aid your learning or discussions with patients. I have listed them below for you to follow along. Please feel free to share any other contraception resources you might have.
I am a GP working in Broome, NW of Western Australia. I work as a hospital DMO (District Med Officer) doing Emergency, Anaesthestics, some Obstetrics and a lot of miscellaneous primary care. Also on the web as @broomedocs | + Casey Parker | Contact
