Do you have questions about the risks of pregnancy and pulmonary hypertension (PH)? Ask your PH team about the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA)’s latest Patient Education Clinic worksheet.

“PH, Pregnancy and Contraception” addresses life-threatening complications that can occur during pregnancy or shortly after birth. It also discusses how pregnancy can worsen PH symptoms and threaten the health and survival of the child.

The document covers birth control options and includes a chart of most to least effective contraceptive options.

PH Professionals: Active members of PHA’s PH Clinicians and Researchers and PH Professional Network can download the document to share with their patients. The handout is available through PHA’s PH Practice Library, which houses the Patient Education Clinic series.
