Kelly Osbourne and International Health Groups Call for Improved Education on Choices and Usage of Contraception

lan the first time they have sex. Almost half stated that it just happened spontaneously because it felt like the right time and place.(3) In addition, almost half of couples had sex for the first time together without using contraception.(3) Whilst women often underestimate their pregnancy risk, they also overlook the enormous impact of a mistimed or unwanted pregnancy on their life.

"In Europe, too many women are still having abortions as a form of 'contraception'. We need to shift this misunderstanding and educate people on their right to contraception and on how to use contraception properly to prevent conception in the first instance," commented Prof Jean-Jacques Amy from the European Society of Contraception and Reproductive Health (ESC). "Unplanned pregnancies not only impact on society but most importantly on the woman, be it emotionally, socially or financially. We must work to make contraception accessible to all in the reproductive age, and educate on its effective use."

Research shows that having a child at a young age can often limit a young woman's education and career prospects and results in higher rates of poverty and a lower standard of living.(4) Preterm and low birth weight babies are more frequent among adolescent mothers and the children are more likely to suffer from childhood health issues or to be hospitalized, than those born to older women.(4) Children born to young mothers are also much more likely to experience a range of negative outcomes in later life, such as developmental disabilities, behavioural issues and poor academic performance.(4,5)

Societal costs for unplanned pregnancy and abortion are significant. In Europe, the availability of abortion ranges from availability "on demand" to only being available in extreme circumstances.(6) In addition, couples in most countries have to pay for contraception whereas abortions are either state-funded or a cheaper alternative.(2) Even in countries where there is adequate
