Introduction:

The care of contraception is important once you start the sex lives, but this hasn't been measured in different realities of Latin-America. Objective: To determine the socio-educational factors associated with non-use of contraceptive methods in universities in four Latin American countries. Methodology: Cross-sectional study. Surveyed women students, who have started their sexual lives. They were asked about the use of condoms, rhythm method, birth control pills and next day pill. These're described and associated to variables socio-educational.

Results:

7% (47) did not use any of the 4 contraceptive methods; when performing the multivariate analysis, there were no statistically significant differences by country, the year of study or if they were Catholic/Christian (all values p>0.05), on the other hand, those of particular universities had a higher percentage of non- take care of yourself with one of the 4 methods (RPa: 2,52; IC95%: 1,24-5,14; value p=0,010). According to the use of one of the 4 methods, the country where it was surveyed had many differences between the use of one or the other method; the year of the degree was not associated with the non-use of any of the four methods; those who were Catholic or Christian used less oral contraception (p <0.001) and those who studied at private universities used the rhythm method more (p <0.05).

Conclusions:

A significant percentage did not use any of the four most common contraceptive methods, this being associated with the type of university.
