IUSSP 2001-RH: Contraceptive Practice in Quirino Province, Philippines: Experience of Side Effects

This study examines the contraceptive practices and understandings of women in Quirino Province, Philippines that led many women to discontinue use of contraception even though they do not wish to become pregnant. This qualitative research study was initiated in response to the the high rate of contraceptive discontinuation reported in the 1998 Philippines National Demographic and Health Survey. The results indicate that two in five contraceptive users discontinue use within the first year. Three factors are examined for their impact on contraceptive use behavior: occurence of side effects, spousal relations, and quality of care.
