Condoms, rather than intrauterine devices, were the most commonly cited method of contraception among women attending an outpatient gynecology clinic in Beijing, China.
Women were recruited from the Outpatient Gynecology Clinic at Peking University First Hospital, Beijing, China, between May 15 and July 25, 2008. All women attending the clinic were asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire regarding contraceptive knowledge and current contraception behavior. To ensure accuracy, the questionnaire was created in English, translated into Mandarin Chinese, and back-translated. The study protocol and all research instruments were reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Boards of both the Chinese and the US institutions.
