But World Contraception Day came about not so long ago; it was officially launched in 2007. The day celebrated annually on September 26 isn't so much a holiday as a long-term campaign aimed at all women and men of reproductive age. Its goal is to maximize people's awareness of methods of contraception, reduce the high level of unplanned pregnancies, and, consequently, reduce the number of abortions. Its main motto is: "Contraception: It's Your Life, it's your responsibility."

On this occasion, RUBRYKA tells about the 25 most interesting methods of contraception.
