method Chooser – an interactive tool that helps users find the contraceptive methods that best match their preferences, lifestyle, and health history
FAQs – answers to many general questions about contraception and common concerns about specific methods like whether you can reuse condoms, and when you can start each method after giving birth, having a miscarriage, or having an abortion
tips and interactive counseling examples – improve your counseling skills, comfort with discussing reproductive health information, and ability to support people from a variety of backgrounds and walks of life
