Chapter 08: Contraception and Abortion Lowdermilk: Maternity & Women s Health Care, 11th Edition MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. A woman has chosen the calendar method of conception control. Which is the most important action the nurse should perform during the assessment process? a. Obtain a history of the woman s menstrual cycle lengths for the past 6 to 12 months. b. Determine the client s weight gain and loss pattern for the previous year. c. Examine skin pigmentation and hair texture for hormonal changes. d. Explore the client s previous experiences with conception control. ANS: A The calendar method of conception control is based on the number of days in each cycle, counting from the first day of menses. The fertile period is determined after the lengths of menstrual cycles have been accurately recorded for 6 months. Weight gain or loss may be partly related to hormonal fluctuations, but it has no bearing on the use of the calendar method. Integumentary changes may be related to hormonal changes, but they are not indicators for use of the calendar method. Exploring previous experiences with conception control may demonstrate client understanding and compliancy, but these experiences are not the most important aspect to assess for the discussion of the calendar method.
