Contraceptive Counseling and Use among Women with Poorer Health

Contraceptive Counseling and Use among Women with Poorer Health

Over 73 million women in the United States are of reproductive age, accounting for more than 48% of the female population. Of these women, over 25% suffer from chronic conditions including hypertension, diabetes, depression, and vascular disease which do not affect fertility but may increase the risk of pregnancy complications and adverse birth outcomes. Use of effective contraception by women with chronic conditions can enable them to plan their pregnancies and optimize maternal and fetal outcomes. The effectiveness of contraceptive counseling and contraception as part of preventative health efforts are recognized by their coverage without co-pay in the Affordable Care Act.
