A new study by theSkimm reveals that millennial women are worried about the future of their reproductive care. The media company created “Skimm Studies” in the run-up to the November elections to gauge the areas of concern for women age 22-35. The study was undertaken in collaboration with YouGov.

According to the study’s results, almost two-thirds (62 percent) of respondents have been without health insurance at some point in their lives. Of those, more than a fifth (21 percent) are currently without coverage.

Almost 6 in 10 women surveyed (58 percent) use some form of birth control, and 84 percent believe it should be free and available to all who wish it.

Of the 58 percent who said they are on birth control, 21 percent have changed, or are considering changing, the type of method they use since the election of President Trump.

“We’re focused on the routines of our engaged audience of female millennials,” Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, theSkimm’s co-founders and co-CEOs, said in a statement provided to The Washington Times. “Our newest study on healthcare found that this is currently THE most important issue facing millennial women right now.”
