Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,
This year’s Contraceptive Technology conference promises
to be one of the BEST, focusing on some of the most
challenging dilemmas you face in your everyday practice.
What do you need to know about progestin type and VTE
risk in a new pill user? What about a woman with one of
those medical conditions where you need to determine
whether the benefits really do outweigh the risks? Are
certain GYN conditions better managed through the
non-contraceptive benefits of contraception? What do we
know about how contraception affects herpes and HPV?
Join us as the experts examine the evidence and analyze
the conflicting reports. While you’re with us, take a peek
into the future. What’s in the research pipeline for
contraceptives of tomorrow? More pressing, what’s in the
pipeline for Title X and some of the women’s health
services written into the Affordable Care Act? Dr. Hatcher
will share with you answers to his favorite top 10 questions
that clinicians like you have sent to his website.
Did you know that most of the clinicians that attend “CT”
have been providing women’s health care for at least 15
years? Think of the networking opportunities you’ll have
to share “war stories” and find solutions for clinical challenges
you’re facing. With a choice of multiple Preconferences
and concurrent sessions, your conference experience will
be rich with learning, discussion and interaction. And
don’t forget … the “Rock Stars” of contraception, the
authors of Contraceptive Technology, will be there,
eager to meet and talk with you. See you there!
