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.

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant and with audit trails.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving Locum's invoices and the facility for signing the Pension Forms electronically and they are then instantly sent with an audit trail! It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a Locum GP adds availability which is just fantastic, I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept and very welcome! I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck - it has already eased my workload!"
