Resumen

BORGES, Ana Luiza Vilela et al. Post-abortion contraception: care and practices. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.2, pp.293-300. ISSN 1518-8345.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0104-1169.3240.2415.

OBJECTIVE:

to analyze assistance regarding contraception methods received by women during hospitalization due to abortion, and contraceptive practices the month after this episode.

METHODS:

a longitudinal study of women hospitalized due to abortion in a public hospital in the city of São Paulo. Face-to-face interviews (n=170) followed by telephone interviews in the subsequent month (n=147) were conducted between May and December of 2011.

RESULTS:

a small number of women reported they received guidance on, and prescription for, contraceptive methods at hospital discharge. A trend of statistical significance was identified for prescription of contraceptive methods at discharge and its use in the following month, when adjusted for age. Most women reported sexual intercourse (69.4%) with the use of contraceptive method (82.4%), but no health professional guidance (63.1%).

CONCLUSION:

despite the fact that post-abortion contraception assistance was lower than the recommended guidelines by public health policies, women demonstrated willingness to use contraceptive methods.
