ABSTRACT
SUMMARY: This part of the 1998 Canadian Contraception Study describes findings related to Canadian women's familiarity with, opinions about, and use of various contraceptive methods. Familiarity was almost universal for oral contraceptives and condoms, but less than 60% of women aged 15 to 44 were familiar with the other methods. Respondents had the most positive opinions about oral contraceptives (64% of women had a "very favourable opinion"), were less positive about male sterilization (40%), condoms (37%), and female sterilization (31%) and even less so for each of the other methods cited (less than 15% in all cases). Condoms and oral contraceptives were the most widely used methods among sexually active women using contraception (44% and 43% respectively). These findings confirm the central place of oral contraceptives and condoms in the contraceptive awareness and practices of Canadian women.
