FSRH guideline on contraception, overweight, and obesity
This CPD activity consists of 5 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on the FSRH guideline on contraception in patients who are overweight or have obesity.
The questions, written by Dr Annabel Forsyth and Valerie Warner Findlay, relate to their expert article, Overweight and obesity influence contraceptive choice. The article covers the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health guideline on the choice of appropriate contraception in overweight and obesity.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- determine the effect of a woman’s body mass index (BMI) on their contraceptive options
- tailor emergency contraceptive choices for women with elevated BMI
- adapt contraceptive choice based on a the variety of risk factors associated with elevated BMI.
