|Sex Sense: Canadian
Contraception Guide is designed to encourage and support Canadians in
choosing a contraceptive method that best suits their health and lifestyle. It
is a comprehensive book about sexuality and contraception written by medical
experts of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada and
recommended by the Canadian Federation for Sexual Health, the Federation of
Medical Women of Canada, and the Canadian Pharmacists Association. It spells
out the ABCs of safer sex, answering all the questions people are afraid to
ask, or hope they will never have to answer.
For the second, revised edition the authors kept the layout and the table of contents and focused on whats new. New contraceptive methods such as the contraceptive ring, the patch, new oral contraceptive pills and the intrauterine system were added. The information on safer sexual practices and transmission of STIs was updated. The emergency contraception chapter now reflects the fact that the Morning-after-pill is available prescription free across Canada.
Each method is presented in a question and answer format. Included are important questions such as, How effective is a chosen method in preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections and HIV? and What are my chances of getting pregnant if I don't use protection.
Sex Sense provides sexual health solutions:
The SOGC does not encourage young people to have sex, cautions Dr. Sheila Dunn, a family practitioner at Sunnybrook and Womens College Health Sciences Centre and medical director of the Bay Centre for Birth Control. However, if someone is considering sexual activity, they must learn the basics of safe sex to protect their health and that of their partner. Published findings by the World Health Organization show that young people will tend to postpone sexual activity, and use contraception appropriately, when they receive comprehensive information in their formative years.
