Knowledge and acceptance of postabortion contraceptive methods



Knowledge and acceptance of postabortion contraceptive methods



Jornal Brasileiro de Ginecologia 81(6): 271-274



After treatment for abortion and before leaving the hospital, 205 patients were interviewed on the subject of their knowledge, use, and preferences concerning contraceptive methods. 80% of them were under age 30; the cases were also classified by number of pregnancies, parity, and abortions, incidence of abortion by family status, type of abortion (spontaneous or induced), and presence or absence of infection. 50% of the women had never used contraceptive methods. In 10% of the cases, pregnancy occurred during the use of some contraceptive method. After abortion, 53.65% accepted some method (oral contraceptives, 36.10%; IUD, 12.19%; and surgical sterilization, 5.36%, respectively). 4.88% desired a new pregnancy, 16.59% refused contraception, and 24.88% gave unclear answers or were undecided. Oral contraceptives were the most widely known method (70.24% of the cases), the most widely used prior to abortion, at least at some time (39.02%), as well as the preferred 1 after abortion (36.10%).
