Resumen

PIZARRO, Ernesto et al. Estudio PIENSA: efecto de la asesoría sobre la elección de anticonceptivos hormonales combinados en mujeres chilenas. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2014, vol.79, n.5, pp.361-367. ISSN 0717-7526.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75262014000500002.

Objectives: To evaluate the impact of health care professional counseling in the choice of combined self-administered contraceptive method. It also assesses how such advice influences in the final contraceptive choice or how it changes from the original. Method: During routine gynecological consultation, the patient's self-administered contraceptive method (pill, vaginal ring and transdermal patch) preference was registered. This was done before and after physician counseling, through a survey filled by both the patient and the physician. Results: After counseling, of the 867 women who participated, 11.6% changed their previously chosen contraceptive. The pill, originally the chosen method of the majority of women, decreased in terms of preference; although the pill continued to be the preferred contraceptive method, preference for other methods increased. The contraceptive pill decreased 13.4% in the preference rating, while the choice of the vaginal ring and the transdermal patch increased by 63.65 and 56.7% respectively. Conclusion: The pill is women's preferred combined self-administered contraceptive method. Nevertheless during counseling, a standardized information impacts in the contraceptive choice increasing the preference of less conventional methods as transdermal patch and vaginal ring.
