Abstract: Unintended pregnancies are a complex phenomenon in Bangladesh due to various factors. It is found that complex set of relationship exists among the various socioeconomic, cultural and demographic events, which slightly affect the fertility in Bangladesh and can provide us a preliminary idea of how important each variable is by itself. Result shows that women in Bangladesh a significant proportion of pregnancies were unintended and the level of unintended pregnancy was slightly higher among urban women as compared to rural women (32.80% versus 31.00%) according to the bivariate analysis. Findings need to be scientifically used in suitable programs addressing the case of fertility control in the developing countries as well as in Bangladesh.
