In “Practice Bulletin No. 206: Use of Hormonal Contraception in Women With Coexisting Medical Conditions” from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists,1 there is an error on page e131, first column, first paragraph. In the second full sentence that begins “Although little concern exists…,” the phrase “these methods also become USMEC category 3 for method continuation if a new deep vein thrombosis, an ischemic cardiac event, or stroke occur in women already using progestin-only pills, contraceptive implant, or an LNG-IUD” is incorrect and should read, “an LNG-IUD becomes USMEC category 3 for method continuation if an ischemic cardiac event occurs, and progestin-only pills and the contraceptive implant become USMEC category 3 for continuation in women who experience an ischemic cardiac event or stroke.” The full, corrected sentence is as follows: “Although little concern exists about these effects with regard to progestin-only pills, the subdermal implant, and LNG-IUDs, an LNG-IUD becomes USMEC category 3 for method continuation if an ischemic cardiac event occurs, and progestin-only pills and the contraceptive implant become USMEC category 3 for continuation in women who experience an ischemic cardiac event or stroke.”
