A leading pharmaceutical company has suggested that that some women are terminating pregnancies because they have been unaware of the contraceptive methods available to them.
Conducted by Bayer Schering Pharma, a recent report found that 22 per cent of women admit to not using any contraception at all.
However, 34 per cent are aware that their choice in contraceptive can not only allow them greater choice over pregnancies, but will also allow the to get the most from sex.
Dr Caroline Cooper, an expert on contraception, commented: "Women of all ages are not aware of the significant amount of contraception choice available to them, some of which have great benefits and can totally transform your life.
"Hassle-free contraception is not only one less thing for busy women to worry about, but it will allow you to live life to the full and enjoy sex more."
The report also found that 11 per cent of women admitted to being inhibited in the bedroom due to a fear of pregnancy.
