The purpose of this research was to explore with women who have attempted to contracept, how they reached their decisions concerning method selection. Much of the fertility regulation care currently provided to women is based on what the providers believe women need to know and what they assume are the major factors their clients are considering. By exploring with women what they actually consider important when they make their method choice decisions, this research will discern the genuine needs of women.



This research utilized a multimethod approach within an exploratory design to develop a grounded theory of what factors women consider when deciding which, if any contraceptive intervention to use. Subjects were 40 women between the ages of 14 and 46 who had a combined history of contracepting for 310 years.



Both qualitative and quantitative data were gathered using unstructured (n = 5) and semi-structured (n = 35) interviews. Qualitative analysis utilized the constant comparative method. Quantitative data analysis included univariate and bivariate descriptive statistics.



Findings provided a descriptive account of women's reasons for choosing methods and the shared women's beliefs and concerns about the contracepting choices they made. By determining what these women considered in their contraceptive deliberations, discrepancies between the providers' services and the women's needs were determined. Awareness of these factors that become the basis of women's contraceptive decisions will facilitate the development of interventions to more accurately address the fertility regulation health care needs of women.
