Abstract
Rate & Comment (0)
Women of non-Western background are more likely to miss oral contraceptive pills (OCPs). In this study, it is assessed whether this or other demographic differences in adherence can be attributed to variations in socio-cognitive determinants. The higher chance of non-Western women to miss pills can be explained by less positive attitudes toward OCPs and less sense of behavioural control. These factors do not explain effects of age or relationship status on adherence. Ethnic differences with regard to OCP adherence may be reduced by improving attitudes and perceived behavioural control.
