A recent study by the University of Otago finds that knowledge on effective contraceptives is lower than we think, with little information on longer-lasting forms such as implants and IUDs . The study found most teenage girls learn about contraceptives from their peers, and so knowledge is generally passed on and limited. I gave Dr Helen Paterson a call, who is- the lead researcher for the study, to talk about the survey and their findings.
