Contraceptive Counseling Following an Abortion
The purpose of this study is to determine whether contraceptive counseling is effective on acceptance and use of methods in women following an abortion.
Contraceptive counseling is considered an essential component of post abortion care (PAC) programmes and it is recommended to prevent unintended pregnancies and unsafe, repeated abortions. Indeed, most maternal deaths related to unsafe abortions could be prevented by expanding and improving family planning provision.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An organized and comprehensive program of health care that identifies and reduces a woman's reproductive risks before conception through risk assessment, health promotion, and interventions. Preconception care programs may be designed to include the male partner in providing counseling and educational information in preparation for fatherhood, such as genetic counseling and testing, financial and family planning, etc. This concept is different from PRENATAL CARE, which occurs during pregnancy.

Care may be provided in the home, in the hospital, in specialized facilities (HOSPICES), or in specially designated areas of long-term care facilities. The concept also includes bereavement care for the family. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
