This week: birth control, holiday blues and safe kids tips

According to Dr. Renee Mestad, for cost effective birth control that does not require a daily dose, an IUD or an implant could be a woman's best bet. Dr. Mestad is division chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Upstate Medical University.

Mestad offers an overview of currently available contraceptive options, often known as the pill, the patch or the ring -- including their drawbacks and benefits.

Also on the show this week: how to survive the holiday blues, and tips on keeping kids safe from accidents this time of year.
