Objectives This study was conducted in the Family Planning Centre in

Eskisehir. The women who choose the hormonal contraseption methods were studied

for their different features. 

Design and methods The women who applied to

our Advisory Clinic in Eskisehir Family Planning Centre between April 2003 and

March 2005 were investigated. This study was a retrospective investigation in

all women who choose a hormonal contraseptive method. The hormonal method

choosen ( oral contraseptive, DMPA, Mesigyna ) the period of time it was used,

the sociodemographic features and parity of the women was taken into account.

The data were valuated using computer. Statistically the Chi-square test was used. 

Results 713 files was evaluated. The mean age was ( mean±SD ) 30.20±5.47 (

min.18 ; max. 49 ). 378 women ( 53.1% ) had a 8 year learning period, 335 ( 46.9

% ) had a learning period more than 8 years. The mean +_ SD parity, birth and

living children number was respectivly; 1.95±1.68 ( min. 0, max. 14 ),

1.43±1.15 ( min.0, max. 12 ) and 1.36±1.03( min.0, max.8 ). The methods used;

526 (73.8% ) oral contraseptive, 125( 17.5% ) DMPA and 62 ( 8.7% ) were using

Mesigyna.The age of groups were different ( p=0.000 ) for the women who choose

these methods. The age group of under 40 preferred oral contraseptives, the age

group between 40-49 preferred DMPA. The age group between 40-49 did not prefer

Mesigyna at all, this being the least preferred method of all. 312 ( 43.8% )

women carried on using the choosen method, 401( 56.2% ) abandoned their methods.

The women abandening their methods had a meaningful relation ( p=0.004 ) with

their ages. The age group 18-29 abandoned their method the most. There was not a

meaningful relation ( p=0.22 ) with abandoning of methods and the schooling

years of the women. The methods were considered one by one in sequence and the

abandoning of each method oral contraceptive, DMPA and Mesigyna was 59.9%, 36.8%

and 64.5%. The rapidity of abandoning of oral contraceptives differed with age.

The continuity of oral contraseptives was the most in 30-39 age group (p=0.01). 

Conclusions There is a difference in the preference of hormonal contraseptives

according to age. The age of the applying patient must be taken into account

while giving Family Planning Counseling. We think that it will be worth while to

investigate a more detailed study on why women abondon their preferred methods.
