For patients who would like to prevent pregnancy, many options—both hormonal and nonhormonal—exist. Despite the availability of multiple options, many patients do not use them because of either a lack of knowledge or a lack of access, the latter being especially true in uninsured and non−English-speaking communities. Research has shown over the years that while unintended pregnancies have decreased in the United States, more can be done, and primary care providers can play an important role in helping to further decrease and eliminate barriers to contraception.
