One-Third of Scottish Pregnancies, a Mishap

A study has found that nearly one-third of pregnancies in Scotland have been accidents, throwing a big //surprise to prospective parents, who are totally unprepared for it.

Researchers analyzed the surveys of almost 4,000 women who participated in prenatal classes at an Edinburgh hospital, and additional 907 who had approached the hospital for abortions.

Nearly 90% of the women, who wished to undergo an abortion, did so after they were caught unawares, and were not prepared to go through with the pregnancy. The survey established the need for a regular contraception plan, in place of emergency contraception, to avoid such mishaps.

Professor Anna Glasier, from the University of Edinburgh, and team leader for this research said, "Understanding of sexual behavior and patterns of contraceptive use is crucial for development of interventions to reduce unintended pregnancy. This survey needs to be repeated in other settings and, if the findings are similar elsewhere, a strategy will need to be developed to improve contraceptive use. We need to find ways to raise awareness of the real risks of pregnancy associated with lack of use of contraception or with incorrect or inconsistent use. Emergency contraception is unlikely to make a substantial difference to pregnancy rates."
