The authors examined factors predicting abortion use in two communes in northern Vietnam.
A survey of 504 rural and 523 urban women of childbearing age was conducted.
For the 13.6% of urban and 19% of rural commune women having had an abortion in the previous year, logistic regression analyses demonstrated that use of an intra-uterine device reduced the likelihood of subsequent abortion in both communes.
Traditional method use in the rural commune, however, increased women's likelihood of a subsequent abortion.
Contraceptive use in these 2 communes affected abortion more than sociodemographic factors.
Traditional method use by rural women is a risk for abortion.
