My PhD project aims to expand the understanding of what it means to be a contraceptive user and develop the concept of “contraceptive work”, which I currently define as doing the work of and being responsible for planning, implementing and negotiating contraceptive use in everyday-life. I want to explore what this work can entail and how it is stratified and constructed by gender, sexuality and other categories of difference among young adults in the south of Sweden. The study is based in-depth qualitative interviews with 18-29 year old women, men and non-binary people with have some sort of experience of using contraceptive methods. Through this project, I want to create a new theoretical framework for understanding the various and intersecting layers of contraceptive use and provide an intersectional analysis of the practice of doing “contraceptive work”. The overall purpose of this research is to contribute to broaden and nuance the narratives surrounding contraceptive use and work towards the creation of a more equal and fair reproductive and sexual landscape.
