Unintended Pregnancy: An unintended pregnancy is one that is either mistimed or unwanted at the time of conception. 

Contraception: There are several safe and highly effective methods of contraception to prevent unintended pregnancy. 

Teen Pregnancy: Teen mothers are less likely to finish high school and are more likely to live in poverty than other teens. 

Folic Acid: As a woman, you need folic acid every day, whether you’re planning to get pregnant or not, for the healthy new cells your body makes daily.
