Contraceptive Methods

    In many countries and regions of the world, young people (ages 10-24) experience early marriage followed directly by pressure to bear children, making young married women (YMW) a cohort with particularly high fertility rates, high unmet need for contraception, and high rates of closely spaced pregnancies. Young married women and first-time parents (FTPs) face a unique set of challenges to living healthy sexual and reproductive lives—challenges that are different to those faced by unmarried adolescents, older married women or older parents.

    When used consistently and correctly, oral contraceptives (OCs) are among the most effective methods for preventing unwanted pregnancies. OCs are safe for most women of reproductive age and are used by more than 100 million women worldwide. Many women like OCs because they are controlled by the woman, they can be stopped any time without a provider’s help, and they do not interfere with sex. In addition, community health workers can provide OCs, making them accessible to women who do not have access to a health facility.

    Female sterilization is the most commonly used contraceptive method, used by an estimated 220 million married women worldwide (about 20%). In contrast, male sterilization is the least used modern contraceptive method. An estimated 33 million married women (less than 3%) rely on their partner's vasectomy for contraception.
