Abstract
Rate & Comment (0)
Introduction Few years ago, the contraceptive product market in Spain saw a new contraceptive regimen appear, the extended regimen. This is so because, although these regimens are widely known since 2008 (1), probably there were sociocultural factors among Spanish women witch did not create a favourable scenario for their commercialization. Nowadays, this irruption comes from the hand of diverse studies that show how the Spanish population is losing the fear to this kind of regimens, to the absence of menstruation and to the possibility of handling the cycles by themselves. These works, such as the "Women's preferences for menstrual bleeding frequency: results of the Inconvenience Due to Women's Monthly Bleeding" published in Contraception in 2016 (2), show us how a percentage of women over 50% would want non-monthly cycles independently of their use of COCs. Objective Due to exposed reasons, and taking advantage of the arrival of flexible regimen to Spain in 2017, the Basque Society of Contraception (SVC-EAE) has designed a study understand the preferences of women in our area in this matter. Material and Methods A cross-sectional and prospective study was designed, which began in September 2017 and lasted until the end of December, with the aim of recruiting a minimum of 150 flexible regimen users. In the recruting phase participate 20 researchers distributed by the CAPV, Navarra and La Rioja (Spain), who recruit women between 18 and 49 years of age, without contraindications to the use of COCs, and who initiate contraception with flexible regimen or change their previous regimen to a flexible one. At the moment of being recruited, the user must complete a brief form where she is asked about demographic information, previous experience with contraceptive methods, as well as the main reasons for choosing such a regimen. After initiating the treatment, a control is programmed at month 6 (office or telephone), to evaluate the continuity, tolerance and satisfaction with the method, as well as the management of voluntary bleeding patter by the user. Results At this moment the study is in the recruiting phase with approximately 100 women recruited, and is still on-going
