Violence Against Women

Contraception A woman's ability to plan her reproductive life and her right be free from interference in reproductive decision-making are two fundamental aspects of reproductive self-determination. International instruments have defined the right to plan one's family as the right to determine freely and responsibly the number and spacing of one's children and to possess the information, education, and means necessary to do so. This right has been affirmed in international consensus documents adopted at UN conferences in recent decades, including the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women (Beijing Conference). In addition, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women explicitly urges states to ensure the right to family planning, information, counseling, and services. The right to plan one's family gives rise to a governmental duty to ensure that women and men have equal access to a full range of contraceptive choices and reproductive health services and that they have accurate information about sexual and reproductive health. Nearly 230 million women worldwide - 1 in 6 women of reproductive age - lack information on and access to a full range of contraceptive methods. More than one-third of all pregnancies - 80 million each year - are unwanted or mistimed. A full range of contraceptive methods includes: male and female condoms, vaginal barrier methods, oral contraceptives, implants, injectables, intrauterine devices, male and female sterilization, and emergency contraception (EC). Governments that place obstacles in the way of women's access to contraceptive choices - by strictly regulating or prohibiting contraceptive methods and information, or by requiring a husband's consent for the use of contraception - violate the right to family planning. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) describes EC as a contraceptive method used by women in the first few days following unprotected intercourse to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Some conservative political and religious organizations seek to limit women's reproductive choices by inaccurately characterizing EC as abortion, when, in fact, the WHO considers it a safe contraceptive.

What is birth control? Birth control means things you can do to ensure that pregnancy only happens if and when you want it to. Birth control can mean abstinence. Abstinence is deciding not to do something, and abstaining from having sexual intercourse will ensure that pregnancy does not occur. Birth control can also mean using a method of contraception to ensure that pregnancy does not occur when you do have sexual intercourse. What causes a girl to become pregnant? Having sexual intercourse ... when a boy's hard penis goes inside a girl's vagina - or even just touches the outside of her vagina ... is what leads to pregnancy. (There is more information on another page about having sexual intercourse for the first time Usually, sometime between the ages of 11 and 15, a girl begins to have periods. This shows that the ovaries have begun to produce eggs. An egg is released every month. If it does not meet up with sperm which comes out of the boy's penis during intercourse it dies. Then it leaves the body in the blood which comes out through the vagina during a girl's period every month. If a girl has sexual intercourse with a boy - and neither of them uses contraception, then the girl could become pregnant and a baby will begin to grow inside her womb.

9. The Role Of Contraception In Reducing Abortion, 1998
Review of statistics on the relationship of contraceptive use to abortion rates.
Issues in Brief
IN REDUCING ABORTION F ollowing the 1994 election, which gave social conservatives a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years, emboldened leaders of the antiabortion movement began to campaign openly against government-subsidized family planning programs. In a preview of the legislative assaults to come against both the international and domestic programs, House Pro-Life Caucus Chairman Christopher Smith (R-NJ) declared in January 1995 that he opposed U.S.-supported family planning efforts abroad because they lead to "abortion activism" and, by implication, result in more rather than fewer abortions. In the two and a half years since Smith's comment, the proponents of this view have sowed sufficient doubt among enough policymakers about the role of family planning programs domestically and internationally to disrupt a decades-long political consensus. Previously, all but a very small minority considered self-evident the view that better access to and more effective use of contraceptives are necessary to reduce the incidence of abortion. Fundamentally, the relationship between contraceptive use and abortion is explained by a single phenomenon: the inexorable and universal trend toward couples' wanting, and having, smaller families and trying to time the birth of their children to best advantage. Acknowledgment of this reality is important, since an individual's decision to practice contraception or to have an abortion stems from this same goal.

by William Petrick Long before condoms came in rainbow colors and exotic skins, legendary lover Casanova was sewing together strips of fine linen. Centuries before nonoxynol 9, young women in Constantinople shook the gritty sand from sea sponges and dipped them in lemon juice before insertion. Contraception has a long and inventive history. Now there is a museum dedicated to one of humankind's most persistent quests. Located just outside Toronto, Canada, The History of Contraception Museum is billed as one of a kind. With over 600 different I.U.D.'s, sponges, condoms and other contraceptive devices, the museum is certainly in a class by itself. "We started collecting back in the 1960's," explains Walter Masanic, Director of Public Affairs for Ortho-McNeil, Inc., the company that is responsible for the museum. "People weren't collecting then so we had items taken from a few doctors' offices. But then word spread and we started getting things from all over the world, Asia, Europe, South America, it's an international museum now."

State Laws: Contraceptive Equity

The issue of contraceptive equity gained momentum when insurance companies in large number decided to cover the male impotence drug Viagra. Women's groups argued that it was illogical to cover treatment of male sexual dysfunction without providing coverage for drugs and devices that would reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies. The best of contraceptive equity laws meet two criteria. Check to see if your state has passed a law to cover contraceptives.
Emergency Contraception - Contraception, Not Abortion

An Analysis of Laws and Policy Around the World
The World Health Organization describes emergency contraception (EC) as "contraceptive methods that can be used by women in the first few days following unprotected intercourse to prevent an unwanted pregnancy." Numerous countries worldwide have explicitly approved of EC as a contraceptive measure, either by licensing existing drugs for use as EC, approving new drugs formulated as EC, incorporating EC into government-regulated family planning services or into protocols for caring for victims of sexual violence, or by endorsing existing drugs through publicity and information dissemination about them. How would you like to be at the forefront of insuring contraceptive coverage?

Birth Control Resources
The information provided here is designed to help you make an informed decision about birth control. Only safe, appropriate methods that genuinely prevent conception are recommended. Whichever method of birth control you choose, remember that, aside from abstinence, all birth control methods sometimes fail, even if used properly and consistently. Nonetheless, if you are sexually active, good contraception can greatly reduce your chances of pregnancy. Unless otherwise noted, the statistics used here are gathered from studies of couples initiating a particular method of birth control for one year. Out of 100 women, the failure rate is the number of women who became pregnant using exclusively the birth control method indicated. Failure rates tend to be lower for couples who are married or have used the particular method of birth control in the past.

Contraception - It's Your Choice Welcome to the Contraception Resource Centre. If you are sexually active or are considering having a sexual relationship, you will probably be asking yourself some important questions. For instance: Am I planning on becoming pregnant now, never or in the near future? Should I be worried about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)? What options are available to me in the event of an Unprotected intercourse? Birth Control Methods in a Nutshell Birth control choices come in a variety of shapes and sizes and formulas. While birth control choices are highly individual, all methods of birth control have the same goal - to prevent pregnancy. Birth control methods range from mechanical methods that prevent sperm from entering the uterus, hormonal methods that prevent ovulation so that there is no egg to fertilize, or "natural" methods that require some human skill to perfect. Survey Your Choices Chances are you don't have a clue where to start, but that's what this section is all about. Here you can get the hard facts about safe and effective birth control methods that are currently available. To help you make an informed choice about the contraception choice that is right for you, you can examine a wide range of potential birth control options in this section:

Emergency Contraceptive Pills
(ECPs) around The World

For several decades, ECPs have been prescribed to women to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse, in cases of unanticipated sexual activity, contraceptive failure, or sexual assault. The first documented cases of emergency post-coital contraception came in the 1960s with physicians helping victims of sexual assault reduce the risk of pregnancy. As recently as the early 1990s, almost one-third of ECP prescriptions were for rape victims. As the decade nears its close, there is growing acceptance in the medical community that emergency contraception should be made available to all women at risk of unintended pregnancy. The best-known ECP regimen is called the "Yuzpe Regimen," named for Canadian Professor A. Albert Yuzpe who, in 1974, published the first studies showing ECPs to be safe and effective. The Yuzpe regimen consists of two doses of oral contraceptive pills that combine the hormones estrogen and progestin. The first dose is taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse with the second dose following 12 hours later (which is why we use the term "emergency contraception" rather than the misleading popular phrase "morning-after pill").

Letter From the Editor
Male latex condoms remain the most effective method of preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among sexually active men and women. The latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that while some STIs are in decline, others continue to increase. Copper Intrauterine Devices Modified for Use in Nulliparas Mexican researchers studied two modified copper intrauterine devices (IUDs) specifically for use in nulliparas. Results indicate that the smaller devices may have lower failure rates, cause less pain and bleeding, and are less likely to be expelled than the standard size TCu 380A device. Oral Contraceptive Prescribing: Should Body Weight Influence Choice of Pill? In 2002, Holt et al published data collected during 1990 through 1994 from female enrollees of a large health maintenance organization, Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound in Washington state. Approach to Oral Contraceptive Nuisance Side Effects The approach to oral contraceptive nuisance side effects most often consists of anticipatory guidance, careful history, and education of patients to dispel fears.

20. Publications - Position Papers - Emergency Contraception
American Medical Women's Association position paper supporting EC as an important option.
POSITION STATEMENT ON EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION Founded in 1915, the American Medical Women's Association (AMWA) - a national medical organization of 10,000 women physicians - is dedicated to promoting women's health and furthering the professional development and well-being of women in medicine. AMWA's mission includes strong support of sound policies and programs to improve women's health. AMWA believes that the number of unintended pregnancies in the United States (3.2 million annually ) is unacceptably high and have a detrimental impact on women's health. AMWA should support programs that reduce the rate of unintended pregnancies, as these will improve women's health. About half (1.7 million annually) of unintended pregnancies are the result of contraceptive failure. Barrier methods of contraception have failure rates during the first year of typical use from 12% to 21%. Condoms and diaphragms can slip during use and an estimated 1.5% of condoms break. In addition to contraceptive failure, unintended pregnancies may result when women do not have control over the timing of sexual intercourse or the use of contraception.
