|Title||Correlates of contraceptive use 4 months postabortion: findings from a prospective study in Bangladesh|
Using the social determinants framework as a guide, this study sought to understand correlates of postabortion contraceptive use at the individual, family and abortion service delivery levels.
This prospective study assessed correlates of contraceptive use 4 months postabortion and timing of initiation using a facility-based sample of 398 abortion clients who selected pills, condoms, injectables or no method immediately following the procedure. We measured potential correlates immediately following abortion, inclusive of spontaneous or induced abortion, and assessed contraceptive use outcomes 4 months postabortion. Multivariable logistic regression models identified correlates at each level. Potential individual level correlates included contraceptive and abortion history and fertility intentions; family correlates included intimate partner violence (IPV), discordance in fertility intentions and household decision-making; and service delivery correlates included procedure type and postabortion contraceptive counseling.
