Why contraceptives aren’t used and implications for Market Development

Abstract

Non-use of effective contraceptives is the major contributing factor to unintended pregnancy. Reasons for non-use or use of less effective methods vary greatly. Implications for market development vary according to profile of reasons for non-use among different populations. Counselling and method choice remain fundamental strategies to reducing unmet need and unintended pregnancies.
