Reproductive coercion is one of many tactics that may be used by a perpetrator of intimate partner violence to maintain control over the victim.

SHE recommends community education to raise awareness of reproductive coercion and of services available to help people who are experiencing such coercion, as well as the development and promotion of professional training and resources to help improve the ability of doctors, social workers and other professionals to assess and support women and girls who have experienced reproductive coercion.
