Contraception is a pillar of reducing the rate of pregnancies among young people. Knowledge about the possibilities and characteristics of available methods of contraception is one of the key elements of sex education. It allows planned reproduction and can prevent sexually transmitted infections. In order to assess the knowledge about contraception among Polish youth, we analyzed 2205 collected responses.
