Abstract:

The inconsistent use of contraceptive methods in women is a reproductive health problem. It is associated with the high rates of unplanned pregnancies and negative consequences on women's health such as unsafe abortions, lack of prenatal control and maternal deaths. Every year in the world there are reported approximately 200 million pregnancies and around 50% are unplanned. Likewise, 529,000 of pregnancies have resulted in maternal deaths and 13% of these deaths are due to unsafe abortions. It is very important to highlight that 99% of these pregnancies occur in developing countries, in first place is Latin America and the Caribbean with a reported 38%; this same region reports 24% of abortions worldwide. It is, therefore, that international agencies have emphasized improving the correct and consistent use of contraceptive methods as a strategy to improve maternal health and prevent unplanned pregnancies.
