  • Description:
    In the 3-year period 1970-73, 7.3 percent of U.S. married women who sought to delay their next wanted child became unintentionally pregnant while using contraception within 1 year following initiation of use (table 1). OnIy 3.7 percent of those who had decided to terminate childbearing failed to achieve that goal during the first year of contraception after deciding to prevent future births. Tilde these rates may imply acute problems for the individuals who did experience contraceptive failure, they are an indicator of the high degee of effectiveness of contraceptive use considered in the aggregate.
