ObjectiveThis study sought to compare contraception provided to patients after medication and surgical abortion.Study DesignWomen who underwent first trimester induced abortion at a university-based urban clinic between May 2009 and May 2014 were identified. Medical records were reviewed to determine the method of contraception provided by the clinic to patients after medication and surgical abortion. Postabortal contraception was defined as any contraception administered or prescribed from our health system within 4Â weeks of surgical abortion or mifepristone administration.ResultsWe reviewed 824 women who were 9 weeks gestational age or less and able to choose between medication and surgical termination of pregnancy. Overall, 587 (71.1%) had a surgical abortion and 237 (28.9%) had a medication abortion. Women who had surgical abortions were more likely to initiate long-acting reversible contraception (41.9% vs. 23.2%; pÂ <Â .0001) and more likely to be provided with any type of contraception overall (83% vs. 64.6%; pÂ <Â .0001). The overall follow-up rate after medication abortion was 71.7%.ConclusionsWomen who had surgical abortions had a greater odds of receiving long-acting reversible contraception than those who had medication abortions. Surgical abortion patients were also more likely to be provided contraception overall. Further prospective research is needed to determine the reasons for this difference and to ensure that all patients obtain the contraception that they desire.
