Who needs contraception?

61 million women in the U.S. (ages 15-44)

  • 62% of all women are currently using some form of contraception
  • 77% are married
  • 2% have never married
  • 19,126,000 women don’t use any form of contraception

*Breastfeeding can be used as birth control for up to six months after giving birth, as long as continuous, unrestricted breastfeeding is maintained during the day and night.

** Fertility awareness-based methods (FAMs) are ways to track ovulation — the release of an egg — in order to prevent a pregnancy.

Some people call FAMs "natural family planning”.

To prevent a pregnancy women can abstain from vaginal intercourse on their fertile days, which are 72 hours before ovulation, the day of ovulation, and the day after ovulation.
