Dr. Polis and her co-authors recently completed a systematic review of the effectiveness of various FABMs, and she also recently completed an analysis assessing how use of multiple contraceptive methods (e.g., use FABMs in conjunction with barrier methods during the fertile window) impacts the estimation of FABM prevalence in the U.S. Dr. Urrutia is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology as well as preventive medicine.
