We were the second nation in the world to have access to this revolutionary tablet and up to 80 per cent of Australian women will use it at some point in their lives.

We use contraception for a bunch of different reasons: to ward off STIs, to stop unplanned pregnancies, to regulate hormonal issues, and as a general precaution when having sex with a new partner. There are heaps of different methods out there, and each of them has different advantages and side effects to think about.

A significant lack of contraceptive information resources in the Aboriginal community in the Hunter region led to a four-year project. Hey Sister! Hey Brother! is a new information booklet tailored to address contraception awareness of Aboriginal women and men in the Hunter region.
