Reproductive and Sexual Coercion Screening Comes to OB/GYN Offices

Reproductive coercion and sexual coercion are not new ideas to advocates. For decades, survivors have been sharing their stories about partners poking holes in condoms, flushing birth control pills, pressuring to get pregnant, and pressuring to have sex. These conversations are now extending beyond our advocacy sphere and into doctors' offices.

In this research review, we take a look at the Committee Opinion on Reproductive and Sexual Coercion that was released in February 2013 from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). We discuss the ACOG's recommendations for healthcare providers and practical steps for advocates. To read the entire research review, please download the PDF below.
