Or read about the importance of contraception:

One-third of women who begin using a modern method of contraception in low-income countries discontinue within the first year, and half within the first two years, putting them at risk for unintended pregnancies as well as maternal morbidity and mortality (Castle & Askew, 2015).

Contraceptive disuse, or discontinuation, is characterized by quitting a method, switching from one method to another, and method failure.
