Counseling Prior Contraception: Is It a Provider Failure or Patient Failure?

Unintended pregnancy is not only a major health problem, but are also a great social and financial burden on societies and countries. There are about 75 million unwanted pregnancies per year according to WHO statistics. When abortions were included, unintended pregnancies increased to 2.65 million, or 49% of all pregnancies. Counseling prior contraception is a mandatory or a must to prevent these unintended pregnancies and their related risks. Unfortunately counseling is a deficient process in third world countries and usually made by young medical staffs or sometimes by paramedical personnel or not present at all. In this perspective, issues for deficient counseling and how patients select the method of contraception are addressed.
