This study examined hormonal contraceptive use and pregnancy in urban Rwandan women, following human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody testing and counseling.
A sample of 1458 childbearing urban Rwandan women aged 18 to 35 years was tested and followed for 2 years.
At enrollment, 17% of 998 HIV-negative women and 11% of 460-HIV positive women were pregnant, and 17% vs 23%, respectively, were using hormonal contraceptives.
One year later, half of the HIV-positive and one third of the HIV-negative hormonal-contraceptive users had discontinued use.
