In Episode 15 karen talks to Dr Britta Wigginton, an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Psychology, at The University of Queensland. She is first author of a paper entitled ‘A qualitative analysis of women’s explanations for changing contraception: the importance of non-contraceptive effects‘, published in the Journal of Family Planning and Reproductive Health Care.  Using qualitative data from a contraceptive survey of young Australian women, the authors explored women’s explanations for their recent changes in contraception. My conversation with Britta was about the findings from this work, including the non-contraceptive reasons for contraception change. [20mins]
