  1. Fulltext. Contraception and abortion in two vietnamese communes.

    Article - En anglais



    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.
