    Rinehart W

    Targu-Mures, Romania, Institutul Est European de Sanatate a Reproducerii, 2006. 15 p. (Actualitati in planificarea familiala No. 1)

    The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued new family planning guidance, including the following: Most women with HIV infection generally can use IUDs. Women generally can take hormonal contraceptives while on antiretroviral (ARV) therapy for HIV infection, although there are interactions between contraceptive hormones and certain ARV drugs. Women with clinical depression usually can take hormonal contraceptives. More than 35 experts met at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, in October 2003 and developed this and other new guidance. The new guidance updates the 2000 Medical Eligibility Criteria (MEC) for Contraceptive Use. (excerpt)

    Hormonal methods appropriate for women with depression.

    In: WHO updates medical eligibility criteria for contraceptives, by Ward Rinehart. Baltimore, Maryland, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Communication Programs, Information and Knowledge for Optimal Health Project [INFO], 2004 Aug. 5. (INFO Reports No. 1; USAID Grant No. GPH-A-00-02-00003-00)

    Considering depressive disorders for the first time, the October 2003 MEC meeting concluded that there is no need for restriction on use of hormonal contraceptives for women with depression. A variety of studies have found no increase in symptoms among depressed women using combined or progestin-only oral contraceptives, DMPA injectable, or Norplant implants. A single study reported that taking fluoxetine (Prozac) for depression did not reduce the effectiveness of combined or progestin- only oral contraceptives. Conclusions cannot be reached concerning postpartum depression or bipolar disorder because current evidence is inadequate. (excerpt)
