Overview of Unintended Pregnancies and Status of Contraception in Malaysia
What examination or tests should be done routinely before providing a method of contraception?
Class A) Essential & mandatory for Safe and Effective use of the Contraceptive Method
Class B) Contributes substantially to safe & effective use
Class C) Does not contribute significantly to safe & effective use
The class relates to examination or tests for safe initiation of a contraceptive method. They are not intended to address the appropriateness of these examinations or tests in other circumstances.
Blood pressure measurement is desirable but if unavailable, hormonal contraception should not be denied as in these settings, pregnancy morbidity & mortality risks are high
