A woman's sexuality may influence the particular choice and acceptance of a contraceptive method which, in turn, may also affect her sexual response. The type of contraceptive recommended should be determined following both physical and psychological assessment of the woman. A method that is not psychologically acceptance is likely to result in discontinuation. Positive and negative effects of the oral contraceptive pill are considered. Pharmacologically induced symptoms are difficult to specify. There appears to be a much greater incidence of psychological problems.
