Addressing contraception at the time of abortion: experiences of women and health professionals

Jeni Harden and Carrie Purcell

Briefings & Reports

This briefing was published as part of the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) Research Briefings series. Accompanying the paper published in Contraception, this briefing highlights that health professionals advising women tended to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) as the best option, but that women’s perspectives did not always overlap with this view. It also addresses issues of whose knowledge is valued in relation to contraception, with participants’ accounts suggesting they valued experiential information from friends and family as much as clinical information from health professionals.
