Irish women are using the least effective types of contraception for preventing pregnancy, according to new research.

The report, commissioned by the Dublin Well Woman Centre, also found that there is a "concerning over-reliance" on emergency contraception in many cases, while just over half of women aged 17-45 claim that they have had sex where no contraception was used.

Dr Doireann O'Leary, health blogger and Cork GP, joined us for The Last Word on Health to discuss these findings, the contraceptive options available to women and the most effective ones to use.
