Is the really a perfect time for women to accidentally get knocked up? According to a startling new report from Guttmacher which focused on unmarried women in their twenties, being young, happy,

more than two-thirds of pregnancies are unintended
three quarters of pregnancies among unmarried women between ages 20 and 24 were unintended
Non-hispanic black women in their twenties had a higher rate of unintended pregnancy than their white and Hispanic counterparts
as a woman's level of education increased, the likelihood that she'd become unintentionally pregnant in her twenties decreased
