Use of contraceptives by Roma women from Plovdiv region

Folia Med (Plovdiv). 2022 Oct 31;64(5):782-786. doi: 10.3897/folmed.64.e67757.


The share of unwanted pregnancies and voluntary abortions among women from Central and Eastern Europe is still quite high, and Bulgaria is no exception to this statistic. This might be accounted for by the low frequency of use of contraceptives or their improper use. Our country is home to a variety of ethnic groups, with Roma being one of the most numerous, ranking third in population behind Bulgarians and Turks. This determines the influence of this ethnic group on the demographic indicators of the country.
