Open-Ended Questions

​Use open-ended questions about preferences to help patients clarify what they are looking for in a method of contraception.

Yes or no questions are appropriate for factual history taking. When the conversation is geared towards assisting the patient in clarifying what is important to them, or what their preferences are regarding contraception or any other sexual or reproductive health topic, open-ended questions can help to gather more nuanced information.
