The incorporation of transcultural nursing concepts has become an integral component of holistic nursing practice. However, to deliver culturally appropriate nursing care, knowledge of cross-cultural health beliefs and practices is necessary. This article reviews cultural perspectives on contraception based on a literature review of qualitative and quantitative health care research studies related to the topics of culture and contraception. The purpose of this literature review is to provide a knowledge foundation for health care providers who provide contraceptive counseling. Implications for practice, as well as recommendations for future research, are developed.
