The edition was published by the Central Commission for the Study of Contraceptives formed in the 1920s. This issue included 4 articles on different studies: by 3 scholars from Kiev and one from Nizhniy Novgorod:
1. Coitus interruptus as an undesirable way to prevent conception by Khomiakova-Buslova
2. Pregnant x-ray sterilization of women and its consequences by Ya.B. Porkhovnik
3. Some experimental data on the relationship between the uterine mucosa and the ovary by O. Levinskiy
4. Intrauterine injections of iodine to prevent pregnancy as one of the causes of ectopic pregnancy by S. Dobrotin.

The third article is focused on the experiments by Ukrainian patophysiologist Levinsky, overlooked by Nikolay Vashetko (1880-1960), one of the key figures in Ukrainian medicine in 1920s, who was arrested in 1931 because of his ties with the Ukrainian counterrevolutionaries (likely non-existing).

The article describes in details in experiments on the subject, that were conducted in Vashetko laboratory.
The fourth article, by physician Dobrotin describes a several cases of unsuccessful contraception (injections of iodine) during his practice in 1920s.
