ABSTRACT
SUMMARY: Since 1984, four national surveys have examined Canadian women's contraceptive practices. The Canadian Fertility Study, and the three Canadian Contraception Studies (conducted in 1993, 1995, and 1998) allow analysis of trends in contraception across a fifteen-year time span. Except for oral contraceptives and condoms, familiarity with most methods of birth control has dropped consistently and significantly among women surveyed over the fifteen-year time period. The most significant change in contraceptive method use has been in female sterilization, which has declined from 24% of current contraceptive use among Canadian women in 1984, to 10% in 1998. The oral contraceptive has become, and remains, the most widely used method, currently used by 28% of Canadian women surveyed.
