Key Points for Providers and Clients


  • All contraceptives are safe for young people. Unmarried and married youth may have different sexual and reproductive health needs.


  • Correct information can help men make better decisions about their own health and their partner’s health, too.
    When couples discuss contraception, they are more likely to make plans that they can carry out.

Women Near Menopause

  • To be sure to avoid pregnancy, a woman should use contraception until she has had no monthly bleeding for 12 months in a row.

Clients With Disabilities

  • People with disabilities deserve full and sometimes adapted information and the same respectful and conscientious care as other clients.
