AbstractNurse practitioners can help women 40 and older make contraceptive choices that are effective, safe, and appropriate. The noncontraceptive benefits of some methods may be particularly relevant to women in this age group. Providing women with information about continuing fertility as they approach menopause and when it is safe to discontinue contraception may help to reduce unplanned pregnancies.
