Studies have shown that choosing a method of contraception and using it effectively is a complex issue influenced by more than the simple availability of information .
According to the Iranian Demographic Health Survey (IDHS) 17.8% of couples are using withdrawals, even though the national family planning program does not encourage this method .
This study employed mixed methods to understand rates of contraceptive use in rural Burundi.
We first assessed availability and uptake of contraceptives in 39 health clinics in the rural districts of Rumonge and Bururi.
However, despite the importance of these studies, they have been unable to detect the effects of other variables on choice of withdrawal as a birth control method.
It is argued that it is crucial for the health care providers to assess women's attitude about family planning prior to educating them and providing them with contraceptive services .
Uptake was inversely associated with duration of stockouts and number of contraceptives stocked out.
Qualitative data pointed to scarce resources, sociocultural factors, fear of disclosure and side effects, partner’s disapproval, and lack of information on modern contraceptives as explanations of low uptake.
The aim of this study was to explore withdrawal users' experiences of and attitudes to contraceptive methods in Tehran, Iran. A sample of women attending a health care center in Tehran, Iran was entered into the study.
To collect data structured interviews were conducted.
