The intersection of mental health and contraception represents a complex interplay between psychological well-being and reproductive choices. Mental health encompasses emotional and cognitive aspects crucial for effective coping with life's challenges. Contraception, particularly contraceptive pills, offers women control over family planning. While enabling autonomy, contraceptives may entail side effects that impact mental health, such as hormonal fluctuations, mood changes, and diminished libido. Furthermore, limited access to contraceptive options can exacerbate physical and mental health disparities. The absence of male contraceptive alternatives places disproportionate responsibility on women, affecting their mental and physical well-being. This article explores the multifaceted relationship between mental health and contraception, addressing issues across diverse familial and societal contexts, and suggesting strategies to promote holistic well-being.
