Contraceptive practices, especially oral contraceptive and intrauterine device use, were studied in four Nordic countries by recalculating published and unpublished data from previous surveys and statistics and by collecting new data from Finland.
The sales of oral contraceptives were presented in defined daily doses, and the percentages of women using oral contraceptives were estimated from them.
The percentages of intrauterine device users were calculated taking into account the number of intrauterine devices sold each year and the continuation of use from previous years.
