There are many effective contraceptive methods available, yet 46% of pregnancies in Vermont are unintended. The majority of educational initiatives to increase high-efficacy contraceptive use are directed only towards women, and not their male partners. This intervention aims to help primary care providers educate young male patients on contraception, using an engaging pamphlet. Improving male patient awareness and understanding of contraception options may help partners have open and informed discussions that lead to more consistent contraceptive use.
