A Person-Centered Approach to Contraceptive Counseling: Why and How to Do It
Emerging data indicate that common contraceptive counseling practices, such as using a LARC-first approach, can result in perceived coercion and mistrust of providers by patients. Patients and providers may prioritize different features of contraceptive methods, and marginalized populations in particular may experience perceived pressure to use LARC as a threat to reproductive autonomy. A patient-centered approach to contraceptive counseling can address these concerns by starting with a discussion of individuals’ reproductive goals and by helping individuals align their preferences and values with their contraceptive decisions.
