Reproductive Health Care: Conversations for Clinicians and their Patients
Reproductive Health is an important element of full-spectrum care. The current health care environment in the US has created fear and anxiety for women and their clinicians, prompted by uncertainty about availability of services, coverage for care and access to clinicians. Education and training that build solutions for reproductive health care will help to alleviate some of that uncertainty.
The average American woman becomes sexually active at age 17 and wants two children. She will spend approximately 4 years of her sexually active reproductive life either pregnant or trying to get pregnant, and 25+ years trying to avoid pregnancy.
