Contraceptive efficacy - still an unresolved dilemma aggravating birth control
and family planning.
Women interested in contraception are nowadays not content with information they receive
in their doctor's office but search for additional information in various sources. Among these
sources websites, publications by government agencies, and in fewer cases articles and books
are the most preferred. The present paper highlights data presented in research publications
and websites that are incomplete, inaccurate or misleading and suggests remedial strategies to
ascertain the derivation of reliable data on the efficacy of contraceptive methods.
