FSRH | Problematic bleeding with hormonal contraception

This is an updated guideline from the FSRH on how to investigate and manage women with abnormal bleeding on contraception. I don’t think there is much new here, but there are a couple of excellent flow charts which summarise the management.

One nice point is that it gives advice that women don’t all need to be investigated if the bleeding is short lived and in the first 3m of use of the method.

There is also a really nice table that outlines different bleeding patterns that can occur with different contraceptive methods. I haven’t attached that, but it is a really useful table to reference.

"A must-have for any GP locum.

I have used NASGP website since I started locuming three years ago. It caters for all my locum needs, and I found LocumDeck particularly useful for bookings and invoicing. The automatically-generated invoices and pension forms save me countless hours of admin time every month, and the recently introduced e-signed forms are brilliant.

The assistance I have received has always been quick and helpful. The forums and updates have also kept me in the loop with important issues which may affect my practice.

I cannot recommend this website enough. "
