Contraception encompasses the concept of avoiding a pregnancy, and is aimed at women of reproductive age who, although are sexually active, do not want to achieve any pregnancy at their option fertility preservation and family planning. It should be underlined that no method of contraception is 100% guaranteed because its success depends on many factors such as patient’s compliance to gynecologists instructions, woman’s age, the advantages and disadvantages of each method, the frequency of sexual intercourse and of course the type of contraception. Proper use of each method requires knowledge. Contraception is not enough, but it should be done properly to avoid unwanted pregnancy. Fortunately, contraceptive methods nowadays are many, simple to implement and extremely effective. In a society that is constantly evolving as technology advances, there is a profound humanitarian crisis at all levels, where human values and even human lives are violated. Family Planning protects and promotes the rights of both the woman and her unborn child, an unborn human being inside the womb. In this day and age that the number of abortions increases disproportionately to the number of births every person and especially teenage women, as the weaker sex in many subpopulation groups, have the right to be informed, protected and supported by the family planning centers.
