To better understand the prevalence and correlates of pregnancy intentions among female sex workers FSWs. Cross-sectional analysis using data from an open prospective cohort of street and off-street FSWs in Vancouver, Canada, in partnership with local sex work and community agencies. FSWs were recruited through outreach to street and off-street locations e.
Of the women, In our final multivariable model, servicing clients in formal indoor settings, inconsistent condom use by clients, younger age, and intimate partner violence IPV were associated with pregnancy intention.
FSWs may have pregnancy intention levels similar to that of women in other occupations. Though risks for HIV and pregnancy are intimately intertwined, research on female sex workers FSWs has focused almost exclusively on disease prevention and transmission, while overlooking the reproductive health RH needs and wants of this population[ 1 ].
Diverted research and practice attention from the reproductive rights and needs of FSWs also may contribute to the high level of unmet reproductive need among this population[ 3 ]. Understanding the pregnancy intentions of FSWs is necessary to inform comprehensive public health programmes that can meet their reproductive needs and desires.
Despite emerging evidence of high levels of pregnancy and parenting among FSWs[ 4 , 5 ], little is known about the pregnancy intentions of this population, particularly among FSWs in industrialised settings such as in North America. Instead, these studies documented levels of abortions as a proxy measure of unintended pregnancy, which probably underestimates the true rate of unintended pregnancy by not accounting for unintended pregnancies resulting in live births or those that ended in spontaneous abortion.
