Directory of hormonal contraceptives 1996. 3rd ed. Repertoire des contraceptifs hormonaux 1996. 3e edition. Guia de anticonceptivos hormonales 1996. 3a edicion.
London, England, International Planned Parenthood Federation [IPPF], 1996. 102 p. (IPPF Medical Publications)The "Directory of Hormonal Contraceptives" lists the composition and manufacturer of all such methods available in the major world countries. By coding all products with the same composition or formula, despite different brand names, the directory enables family planning providers to advise clients as to whether an identical formulation is available in other countries to which they might be relocating. The first and second editions of this directory were very useful to family planning associations, individual physicians, and international organizations. Since publication of the second edition in 1992, many new hormonal products have become available and others have been discontinued. This third edition expands the categories of hormonal contraceptives from the original five to eight: combined pills, phasic pills, progestogen-only pills, progestogen injectables, combined injectables, implants, hormonal IUDs, and emergency contraception. A further change is inclusion of some countries with populations under 100,000 that are members or associate members of IPPF. Finally, products containing more than 50 mcg of estrogen are no longer included since this dose is seldom used.
