In 2015, it was estimated that about 73% of women in Honduras (who were married/in unions and between the ages of 15-49) were using any form of contraception, including traditional methods. This was roughly comparable to the Central American average (about 71% of women). Furthermore, it was estimated that about 11% of women had unmet family planning needs, which was equal to the Central American average (11% of women). The most common forms of contraception were female sterilization (22% of women), contraceptive injectables (18% of women), and contraceptive pills (12% of women). Other forms of contraception were IUDs (7% of women) and condoms (4% of women). Traditional methods were also used by some women, including withdrawal (6% of women) and the rhythm method (3% of women). There were practically no recorded users of vaginal barrier methods or contraceptive implants.<ref name="unreport_contraceptives2015">[http://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/publications/pdf/family/trendsContraceptiveUse2015Report.pdf Trends in Contraceptive Use Worldwide 2015]</ref>
