  1. Sexuality, reproduction, and contraception among residents in obstetrics and gynecology.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To investigate the contraceptive practices and attitudes of residents in obstetrics and gynecology, both personally and professionally.

    Methods 

    We conducted a national survey of obstetrics and gynecology residents.

    Results 

    One thousand ninety-one questionnaires (29% of those mailed) were returned, representing 3761 residents in 218 of the 275 programs surveyed.

    Less than 2% of this population wishing to avoid conception failed to use contraception.

    The oral contraceptive (OC) pill, the most common current method of contraception (59%), was significantly more prevalent among female residents than among female partners of male residents (P<. 001).

    Condom use was more prevalent among male residents than among partners of female residents (P=005).

    When controlled for age, parity, and marital status, and using log linear analysis, gender had a statistically significant impact on the use of several contraceptive methods.

    Female residents were five times more likely than a comparably educated, nonphysician group of women to use OCs.

    Twenty-six percent of respondents stated that they would not use the intrauterine device (IUD) personally, but might recommend it to their patients.

    Conclusions 

    Residents in obstetrics and gynecology demonstrate a high prevalence of contraceptive use.

    Controlling for demographic variables, we found that male and female residents have different attitudes on contraceptive use.
