Not a "People" Person

I'm wondering about that 1/3 who use contraception "inconsistently or not at all" and how much of that is caused by misinformation; the amount of info I've personally had from doctors concerning the contraceptive pill has varied horrendously- it wasn't until about a year ago that I found out you're supposed to take a repeat dose if you have an upset stomach. It seems unfair to label the usage as "inconsistent" if you just don't know that you're doing anything wrong.
