Pregnancy coercion and partner knowledge of contraceptive use among Ethiopian women

View All Publications

This study examines the association between reproductive coercion and partner knowledge of contraceptive use when considering the timing of couple communication about use in Ethiopia. Pregnancy coercion is the only form of reproductive coercion examined in the present study given the requirement of partner knowledge in condom use and lack of data on condom manipulation from the parent study. Specifically, we examine the relationship between pregnancy coercion and partner knowledge about contraception (overt use with couple discussion be- fore method initiation, overt use with no discussion, overt use with couple discussion after initiation, and covert use of contraception) within a nationally representative sample of Ethiopian women.
