Abstract
Objectives The rate of condom and other contraception use varies depending on social, personal and sexual characteristics. We present a study covering various contraceptive means, considering sexual orientation and considering a large panel of co-variables among Swiss resident young adults. Methods Data were obtained from a self-administrated national survey on sexual behavior. Participants (N=4703, 49% males) were divided into three groups based on the mean of contraception used at last intercourse: CONDOM (55.1, 54.3% males), CONTRACEPTIVE (34.3, 43.1% males) and NON-USE (10.5, 50.7% males). By gender, groups were compared on sociodemographic and personal characteristics, contraception used at first intercourse (FI) and sexual life. Results Globally, 90% of participants used a reliable contraception at last intercourse. Compared to the CONDOM group, participants in the CONTRACEPTIVE group were more likely to have already used a contraceptive at FI, and individuals in the NON-USE group were more likely to have had a non-use or to have used a contraceptive only at FI. Conclusions Contraception at FI seems to have a considerable impact on the further use of contraception. It seems thus essential to make all necessary efforts in order to promote the best contraception and protection at FI.
