Knowledge and use of birth control methods in active duty army enlisted medical trainees.
This study was designed to determine the familiarity of medical advanced individual training (AIT) students with current methods of birth control and to evaluate the accessibility of these methods.
A survey was distributed to 578 medical specialist AIT students assigned to Fort Sam Houston, Texas, for training.
Results obtained show a lack of knowledge concerning the newer forms of contraceptives available.
This study also indicates that barriers may exist that limit a soldier's ability to acquire prescription forms of contraception while in training.
