Abstract

Utilizing contraception is critical in preventing unintended pregnancies among obese women. However, clinicians and obese patients may be unclear about which contraceptive methods are optimal. This review discusses the literature on any weight gain associated with contraceptive use, contraceptive efficacy among obese women, and special considerations for contraceptive method selection for women after bariatric surgery. The review also covers new findings on oral emergency contraception and obesity.
