SUMMARY: This part of the 1998 Canadian Contraception Study examines the contraceptive attitudes and practices of women in their later reproductive years. Women aged 35 to 44 years made up 36% of the sample, and their responses to many questions indicated that they constitute a distinct group worthy of particular attention. Women in their later reproductive years were more aware of permanent contraceptive choices than were younger women, and they had more positive opinions of sterilization, and tended to use this method more than did younger women. In addition, they reported lower rates of several types of sexual dysfunction, compared with younger women.
