Unintended pregnancies : reducing rates by improving access to contraception
Lucke, Jayne C., Herbert, Danielle L., Loxton, Deborah, & Weisberg, Edith (2011) Unintended pregnancies : reducing rates by improving access to contraception. Australian Family Physician, 40(11), p. 849.
Unintended pregnancies have significant social, health and financial costs. Importantly, there is surprisingly little information available about the prevalence of unintended pregnancy in Australia. We are currently investigating unintended pregnancy and access to contraception among women aged 18–23 years in rural and urban areas of New South Wales. This is the first step toward understanding how access to effective contraception can be improved and could act as a pilot study for a regular survey of fertility.
