Although the primary indication for oral and nonoral contraception is the prevention of pregnancy resulting from sexual activity, there is little information concerning the impact of contraception on sex and sexuality. This article presents an overview of the available literature concerning the effect of hormonal contraception on sexual health and well-being and evaluates reasons for the dearth of robust scientific information concerning a topic that is integral to the study of contraception and women's health in general.
