SCHIAPPACASSE F, Verónica; BASCUNAN C, Tatiana; FREZ Z, Katherine  y  CORTES H, Isis. Píldora anticonceptiva de emergencia: características de la demanda en una organización no gubernamental en Chile. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2014, vol.79, n.5, pp.378-383.

Background: In Chile, the information about the characteristics of the users of emergency contraception pill is limited. In addition, some studies have revealed barriers to access to this method, despite the law guarantees its provision. Objectives: To enquire the profile of emergency contraceptive pills users and the barriers to its access in public health services. Methods: Descriptive and cross-sectional study. Clinical forms of users who requested the emergency contraceptive pill in Prosalud Chile from January 2012 to March 2013 were revised, in order to analyze age, reason to use, previous use and non-access history in public health services. Results: 520 clinical forms were analyzed. Users mean age was 21.8 ± 6.8 years. 50% of women demanded the pill because they did not use any contraceptive and another half because the contraceptive failed. 71.7% had never used the pill previously and only 0.8% (3 women) used it three and four times before. 8,8% could not obtain the pill in public health services. Conclusions: The majority of the emergency contraceptive pills users are young and they use it because they did not use a contraceptive or the contraceptive failed. The previous and frequent use is low. There are still barriers to access to emergency contraceptive pills in public health services.

Palabras clave : Emergency contraceptive pills; reasons for use; patterns of repetitive use; access.
