ABSTRACT
SUMMARY: The 1998 Canadian Contraception Study asked a series of questions about the changes that women had made, or were planning to make, in their contraceptive choices. Current OC users were most likely to have used either condoms (42%) or no method (37%) prior to OC use. This suggests that many current OC users were new users of contraception. Currently sterilized women (or women whose partners had been sterilized) were most likely to have previously used either the pill (42%) or condoms (26%). Current users of any method were generally content with their present choices, with only 9% planning a change in the next six months. However, the long span of a woman's need for contraception means that most will change methods several times. Counsellors, educators, and clinicians must be aware of these changes, the reasons behind them, and of the methods appropriate to the different needs of women across the reproductive years.
