On Wednesday, Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne revealed that the public will be provided with free contraception in 2023, but how do they really feel about the matter?

A poll conducted by Malta Daily revealed that 51% of respondents use contraceptives while 49% do not, with condoms being the most widely used means of contraception at 57%.

In the poll results, contraceptive pills were the second most popular choice at 27%, with the ‘Other’ category following at 11% and Intrauterine device (IUD) coming in last at 5%.

In his parliamentary reply, Fearne did not specify which type of contraceptions will become available, but the Labour Party had proposed the distribution of contraceptive pills and IUD devices if elected.

In light of the recent revelation, a staggering majority of poll respondents (75%) stated that contraceptives are currently too expensive, with 78% stating that there is not enough awareness at the moment.

Would you agree with these results?

Back in August, a study carried by US analytics firm Gallup revealed that the people of Malta are the angriest in the European Union, with a significant fraction of the population also being stressed, worried and in pain.

Echoing Gallup’s revelation that Maltese people are the most worried in Europe and the fourth most worried in the world, users responding to Malta Daily’s poll revealed that school is the one of the key contributors to stress. 40% voted school as the main cause of stress, with personal problems coming in second at 32% and work third at 28%.

Of the many ways that one could deal with stress, 44% chose exercise, 28% percent chose shopping, 17% opt for travelling under stress and 11% of respondents picked reading to cope.

Do you feel stressed?
