Contraception use among reproductive-age women with rheumatic diseases.
The purpose of this study was to determine contraception use among a cohort of reproductive-age women with rheumatic diseases. Women who had one of 21 possible rheumatic disease diagnoses, and had at least two outpatient rheumatology visits, were included. Findings revealed low use of prescription contraception, and the authors recommended urgent efforts to improve contraceptive care and access for some women with rheumatic diseases.
