  1. Is users' knowledge about contraceptives adequate ? a case study of finnish IUD users.

    Article - En anglais

    intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) are popular: in Finland, in 1987, about 25% of women of childbearing age used them.

    We studied Finnish women's knowledge about contraindications for and side-effects of IUD use, with emphasis on current users.

    In December 1987-January 1988, a postal questionnaire was sent to a random sample of 1000 women of childbearing age, in Uusimaa province, which includes the capital, Helsinki.

    After three reminders, the response rate was 84%.
