Objectives The aim of the study was detection of level of awareness and knowledge in contraceptive methods of the adolescents in Annaba.



Design and methods Qualitative survey among 553 adolescent aged 15-18 in Annaba schools with the use of in-depth and key-informant interviews were carried out.



Results 95% of repondents were aware about pregnancy, negative results of abortion as well as the possibilities of avoinding unwanted pregnancy. Awareness on particular methods of contraception was varying in wide range ( 0.4 -83.1%).Even for the most popular methods of contraception knowledge of correct use was significatly lower than awareness (by 50%, excluding condom). The use of condom seems to be familiar for the majority of the girls (63%). The knowledge about the hormonal pills turned out to be similar. A share of those informed about other means of contraception and aware of their application order is very small (about 2%). Among these, awareness about the traditional and the post-coital contraceptives tends to grow with the years. 87.6% of repondents consider casual sexual contracts as dangerous.Majority of repondents think that both sexual partners have to take care to avoid the unwanted pregnancy.




Conclusion The results above should be taken into consideration during elaboration of educational and health programs of adolesecnt reproductive health.
