Patterns of contraceptive use among Australian women with mental health conditions
The project will examine the associations between mental health disorders and patterns of contraceptive and emergency contraceptive use among young women in Australia. Using data from surveys 1 to 5 of the 1989-95 cohort we aim to understand patterns of contraceptive use among women with depression or anxiety, specifically the methods of contraceptive chosen, frequency of contraceptive use or non-use, occurrences of emergency contraceptive use and changes in contraceptive use over time.
