dc.description.abstractWomen with chronic medical conditions require careful contraceptive management. The aim of this cross-sectional study in Tehran was to determine the pattern of contraception use by women with diabetes, hypertension or obesity. A sample of 264 women aged 18-53 years old was recruited; 81 [‎30.7%]‎ had diabetes type 2, 100 [‎37.9%]‎ were obese/overweight [‎BMI > 25 kg/m 2]‎ and 83 [‎31.5%]‎ had hypertension. Across all 3 groups, the rate of use of contraceptive methods was significantly different before and after diagnosis. Before diagnosis of disease the most common method was hormonal contraception in all women [‎55.0%, 71.6% and 78.3% of diabetic, overweight and hypertensive women respectively]‎, whereas after diagnosis coital withdrawal was the most common method in diabetic and obese/overweight women [‎.2% and 28.0% respectively]‎ and almost the most common method for hypertensive women [‎35.4%]‎. Use of safe and modern methods of contraception in women with certain chronic medical conditions was low and needs more attentionEN
