I am the head of the clinical research department and clinical trials unit at the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Danderyd Hospital. I have an ongoing research in the field of contraception, abortion and fibroids in addition to obstetrics at Karolinska Institutet and is principal investigator of several ongoing clinical studies. I am the president of the working group on family planning in Sweden and president of the European Society of contraception and reproductive health. I am a frequent lecturer on the subject of abortion, contraception and treatment of fibroids and specializes in advanced treatments for patients in these areas.


I am passionate about women’s health and rights. Health care for women should be evidence based and women should receive correct and unbiased information on matters concerning their health. Women’s rights are closely linked to health of women, the health of their offspring and the wellbeing of society as a whole. Therefore, caring for women and improving health and reproductive health and rights is the key to the future of our planet.
