ABSTRACTThere are several causes of abandonment or nonadherence to contraceptive methods. In general, the perception or association of adverse effects of the contraceptive method are the main cause of interruption. Most of the adverse effects of contraceptive methods are related to misconceptions or beliefs, based on myths, that are transmitted over time. Even the influence of abandonment or detachment is supported by the physician himself, who for lack of updating and advice can remain anchored in the past and recommend actions, such as the “breaks” of combined hormonal contraception, which motivate the abandonment or, which is worse, failure of the method, with the consequence of an unwanted pregnancy. The factors intrinsic to the method can increase the abandonment rate, when it does not adapt to the specific characteristics and preferences of the patients. In an attempt to reduce the dropout rate, new formulations of hormonal contraceptives have been developed, with the aim of reducing adverse effects and providing additional benefits that increase the attachment.
