History of Present Illness

Dolores Sanchez is a 16 yo female  Womens health   scheduled for a contraceptive visit. “I want to discuss birth control today. I have a boyfriend and have been using condoms for a while, but I want something more effective. Some of my friends use the shot and have gained weight.  Will the pill make me gain weight?” Dolores states that she has been having intercourse on an infrequent basis over the past year. Now she has a steady partner and is having intercourse approximately twice a week for the past two months. Dolores states that she is currently having a regular, normal period that started 3 days ago.
