Factors influencing the use of contraceptives through the lens of teenage women: A qualitative study in Iran

English Abstract

Background: One out of seven teenage girls in developing countries marry before the age of fifteen. While the fertility rate among teenage girls is high, the rate of contraceptive use remains low. Therefore, they are vulnerable with regard to the provision of reproductive healthcare. This study aimed to explore factors influencing the use of contraceptives from teenage women’s perspectives in Iran. Material & Methods: This qualitative study was conducted with 14 teenage married women aged between 13-19 years old. They referred to urban-rural healthcare centers in Ardabil province, Iran. The eligible women were recruited using purposive sampling and were invited to take part in individual, face to face in-depth semi-structured interviews. The duration of the interview sessions varied from 45 to 90 minutes with an average of 55 minutes. The sampling process was continued until data saturation was reached and no new data was obtained. Each interview was tape-recorded after obtaining the participants’ permission, transcribed verbatim and analyzed for identifying categories and themes using the conventional content analysis method. Results: Three themes and eight subthemes were developed. The themes were as follow: ‘insufficient familiarity with contraceptive methods’, ‘wanted-forced pregnancy’ and ‘misconceptions’. Conclusion: In spite of the high prevalence of early marriage in the Iranian society, the teenage women were not empowered and prepared for marriage and birth control. Sexual and reproductive healthcare services to teenage women should be improved for meeting their needs. Key words: Contraceptives, Teenage women, Qualitative study
