Message from the 2014 CSIG Chair

Thank you for participating in the Contraception Special Interest Group.  

Membership in the Contraception Special Interest Group provides the opportunity to contribute to the Contraception Day Program at ASRM 2014, as well as collaborate with others committed to the promotion and support of basic and applied research in contraception. 


The keynote lecture, High Hopes versus Harsh Realities: The Public-Health Impact of Emergency Contraceptive Pills, by Dr. James Trussell was the highlight of Contraception Day at IFFS/ASRM 2013.  Participants also enjoyed a lively interactive symposium, IUDs in Nulliparous Women, with Drs. Rebecca Allen and Katharine O’Connell White.  Rounding out the day, Drs. Michael Thomas and Jeffrey Jensen presented Thrombosis Risk with Hormonal Contraceptives.  The Contraception Special Interest Group also hosted a postgraduate course entitled, Global Family Planning: The Key to Achieving Millennial Development Goals.


Contraception Day at ASRM 2014 will be in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Look forward to an exciting postgraduate course, Epidemiology and Experimental Design: Using Evidence-Based Medicine to Understand Contraceptive Controversies, featuring renowned professors, David Grimes and Kenneth Schulz.  We are putting the program together now, so please send us your ideas for topics for interactive sessions and roundtables.  Also, consider submitting your research for presentation at ASRM 2014.
