One in four adult women and one in five teens girls report experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV) at some point in their lifetime. Studies are also uncovering high rates of reproductive coercion (pregnancy pressure and direct birth control interference) which can undermine efforts to prevent unplanned and rapid repeat pregnancy. Fortunately, there are interventions and prevention strategies that can help providers identify violence in relationships and reproductive coercion, increase safety and decrease patient risk for unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
