Resolving the "public health dilemma" of steroid contraception and its effects on lactation


Resolving the "public health dilemma" of steroid contraception and its effects on lactation



American Journal of Public Health 66(8): 791-792



ISSN/ISBN: 0090-0036

PMID: 986778

DOI: 10.2105/ajph.66.8.791
