About the collection

Contraception and Reproductive Medicine is calling for submissions to our collection on Birth control technologies: success, side effects, and treating side effects. Concept of contraception has significantly changed over the past years decreasing maternal morbidity. Newer products and combinations of hormonal contraceptive are widely being used for controlling birth.

Recent advancements have introduced the use of natural compounds as contraceptive applications to combat these adverse effects. Although, the suitability of contraceptives among different users and the newer safe choices are limited. This article collection will encourage manuscripts aimed at different birth control technologies, novel approaches, their side effects and the consecutive treatments.
