Despite a plethora of contraception available on the market, nearly 50% of pregnancies in Vermont are unintended. Currently, most educational initiatives aimed at improving contraceptive usage are targeted towards individuals with uteruses, and not their partners with penises. Both qualitative and quantitative data suggest that there are significant gaps in this latter population’s knowledge about contraception for various reasons like limited contraceptive education within formal sexual education in schools, lack of parental and/or physician discussions about contraception, and various complex social and cultural factors. This intervention aims to bridge the knowledge gap in this population by using an educational pamphlet. Improving the awareness and understanding of contraception options in populations who do not actively use contraception may help partners have more open and informed discussions that lead to more consistent contraceptive use.
