This App is intended for health-care providers.
It contains recommendations intended to help health-care providers determine the safe use of contraceptive methods among women with various characteristics, habits and medical conditions.
Providers can select conditions according to the patient, and the App assigns automatically a category for each method. Generally speaking and with medical criteria, the categories 1 and 2 permit the use of a treatment in any case or with some considerations and categories 3 and 4 advise against or forbid its usage. For more information consult this App or its documentation.
The recommendations refer to contraceptive methods being used for contraceptive purposes; the recommendations do not consider the use of contraceptive methods for treatment of medical conditions because the eligibility criteria in these cases may differ.
The recommendations and all information contained in this App, are based on the document "Medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use. Fifth edition.".
Adaptations and modifications to update its contents has been made following the conferences of the "Sociedad Española de Contracepción" (Spanish Society for Contraception) and the CDC document "U.S. Medical Eligibility Criteria for Contraceptive Use, 2010".
