50 percent of romance people use contraception, compared to 25 percent 15 years ago. More and more women in Romania are using the calendar method and the vinegar washes on oral contraceptives and condoms.
If, three years ago, three in four women did not protect themselves, now one in two uses a modern contraceptive method, a study by the Society for Contraceptive and Sexual Education (SECS) shows. However, the natural methods, even if they are uncertain, remained in the top of the list. The contraceptive market is also increasingly varied. We have pills like in the West, less vaginal rings and injectable contraceptives.
Condoms, equal to pills
The most commonly used are condoms, on par with pills.

If women between 20 and 24 years prefer condoms, in proportion of 27%, those between 25 and 34 years use more oral contraceptives - 51%. In the age group 35-44 years, the use of sterilization predominates, and after 45 years, already 25% no longer protect or use, at most, natural methods.
The life partner has a great influence in choosing the contraceptive method, 66% of the respondents mentioning that they also take into account his opinion. Of the women who do not protect themselves - 48%, the majority states that they do not need and, in a much smaller percentage, 23%, that they are going to have a baby.
"This shows that women in Romania do not have enough information on conception and contraception. In France, women use contraceptives for 52 years. There, there are no longer any information campaigns on this topic, because women" know everything ". that the romances become Europence from this point of view, "said the psychologist Aurora Liiceanu, who participated in the presentation of the study.
