Planning for Contraception

According to the National Health & Morbidity Survey 2022 on Maternal and Child Health, only less than half of women of reproductive age or their partner use any contraceptive methods in Malaysia. What is the impact of low contraceptive use on the health and well-being of women and their families, and what are the unmet needs for family planning? Dr Lavitha Sivapatham, Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist from Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur, provides an overview of modern contraceptive methods, and addresses common fears and concerns over the use of contraception.
