The pharmacy has always been a major outlet for the sale and supply of contraceptives. Given privacy concerns, the number of people who ask directly for advice about contraception is small. However, the pharmacy is a good point from which to distribute information, in the form of leaflets, about contraceptives and safe sex. Thus, pharmacists need to be well informed about contraceptive methods, and about pregnancy and ovulation testing. This chapter considers the main methods of contraception, and the type of questions that pharmacy customers may ask about them.

Keywords:   pharmacy practice, pharmacists, contraceptives, safe sex, pregnancy, ovulation
