    This book, which was specifically written for the medical profession, was banned in Australia until the 1960s even though it draws on 20 years of professional study. When it was finally released the book was only available for restricted sale. This shows how little information was available to the medical profession and the general population about contraception during this period which mirrors the forbidden nature of such discussions.
