    Women's Lives 3. Family planning in women’s lives. Focus: Unintended pregnancies

    As part of its series of studies about women’s and men’s family planning, the Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung (BZgA) has commissioned, as another milestone, the comprehensive study ‘women’s lives 3 – family planning in women’s lives’. Its focal point is unintended pregnancies and pregnancy conflicts. Following the investigation of unintended pregnancies and pregnancy terminations among minors, this study surveyed 4,002 women between the ages of 20 and 44 by way of a questionnaire. more

    Youth Sexuality and Disability

    Family planning and migration in women’s lives

    18% of the female population in Germany have a migrant background. More than one fifth of these women are aged between 20 and 44 and thus at an age when family planning and family formation are current issues. Since there is little in the way of fundamental knowledge regarding family formation, contraception and pregnancy termination in this (by place of origin) heterogeneous group, the BZgA commissioned the study “women’s lives: family planning and migration in women’s lives”. more

Current study - first interim results

Family planning in women’s lives - unintended pregnancies and pregnancy conflicts

One of the central results of ‘women’s lives 3’ is that a third of pregnancies were explicitly unintended, occurred prematurely (‘wanted, but later’) or were not altogether intended (‘ambivalent, undecided’). Of the explicitly unintended pregnancies, more than half were carried to term. Unintended pregnancies and their outcome cannot be put down to a single causal factor. more
