ObjectivesTo determine whether types of contraceptive methods used by abortion patients in the month they became pregnant changed between 2000 and 2014.

Patients were asked which contraceptive methods they had last used and when they had stopped or if they were still using them.

ResultsIn both years slightly more than half of patients reported that they had used a contraceptive method in the month they became pregnant, though the decline from 54% in 2000 to 51% in 2014 was statistically significant (p=.011).

Some chromosome abnormalities are iatrogenic; PGT-A could, ...
