Abstract

Contraception and sexual health form a key part of comprehensive health care for all adolescents, including those who suffer from chronic illness. Multiple studies have shown that adolescents with chronic illness have rates of sexual activity equal to or greater than their healthy counterparts. Primary care pediatricians have the most comprehensive view of the health of their medically complex patients and the benefit of a longstanding relationship. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have created a comprehensive guide that provides advice on safe contraceptive options for patients with complex medical conditions. Here we review three cases of adolescents with common chronic medical conditions: von Willebrand disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, and sickle cell disease. [Pediatr Ann. 2019;48(2):e78-e85.].
