Unmet need for family planning remains a significant public health concern. According to the 2017 Indonesian Health Demographic Survey (IDHS), 10.6% of women of childbearing age experienced unmet contraceptive needs with the highest incidence found in women aged 45-49, despite many being in menopause age, highlighting the persistent risk of unwanted pregnancies. The aim of this study is to identify the factors associated with the occurrence of unmet need for family planning. The method used is a literature review that includes results from five articles meeting the criteria. Significant findings indicate relationships between age, family income, media exposure, education, parity, women's authority, husband's support, and visits to healthcare providers regarding pregnancy planning and unmet need for family planning.
