Modern contraceptive methods are widely available in the Russian Federation, but uptake has been hampered by limited provider knowledge of family planning and the lack of integration with primary care. While contraceptive use has increased in recent years, prevalence remains modest in comparison to other European countries. Traditional methods are used widely despite their limited effectiveness. Understanding patterns of contraceptive use and changing sexual behaviors of young women remains important in the Russian context where programs and policies are continually evolving. This paper examines these patterns using 2012 data from the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey.
