Empowering women to make informed choices on birth control.

There are many different methods of birth control to choose from, but it can be tricky to make the right choice. Together with Mödrahälsovårdsenheten (maternal health unit) in Region Stockholm we designed and developed Preventivguiden, a digital service that informs women about different types of birth control. The guide gives recommendations not only based on quantitative data but also on personal preferences, and is a helpful base for discussion when seeing a clinic. Next we hope to design a similar guide for men.

“It’s incredibly difficult to find good information about the side effects of different methods. This guide is very useful, it considers what’s important to me.”
