About WCD

On September 26th - or World Contraception Day as we prefer to call it - it is our mission to spread the word and raise awareness about contraception and safe sex. Our aim is to help each new generation of adults make informed decisions until every pregnancy in the world is a planned one.

Your-Life.com 

Know your body. Know your options. Know your partner. Your-Life.com is a place to explore different types of contraception and learn which one might be best for you. You can also explore a variety of different topics related to contraception and find places in your community to turn for help. 

Framework 

The WCD Coalition, in line with the WCD motto ‘It’s Your Life, It’s Your Future,’ shares a commitment to encourage young people to build contraception into their plans for the future and to prevent unplanned pregnancies and sexual transmitted infections (STIs).
