Friday News: I have a candy hangover!
Today the new iPad Air hits the stores. The iPad Mini with Retina will be released later in the month. Are you upgrading? Why? or Why not?
According to a report from the Guttmacher Institute, more than half of the unintended pregnancies in the US occur among the 10.7% of women who use no contraceptive method at all (and no, downloading Period Tracker does not count as a contraceptive method). This finding comes only a few months after a study carried out by the amazingly named Dr Annie Dude at Duke University. Dr Dude’s findings revealed that 31% of young women in America aged between 15 and 24 had relied on the pull-out method at least once. Unsurprisingly, these women were 7.5% more likely to rely on emergency contraception than others and, even less surprisingly, of those who relied on the pull-out method, 21% had become pregnant.
Part of the problem is that women resent being the one in charge of contraception and they don’t like the negative side effects of the birth control. (But why no condom? Well, because the men don’t like them).
