    It is really important we talk about contraception failure - the pill which is regularly chosen as an effective contraceptive has a failure rate of 8% per year that means 8% of women using the pill, thinking they are being responsible, will fall pregnant per year - not because they did anything wrong just because they (and the contraceptive they chose and were prescribed by a medical practioner) are not perfect.
