Author: Alves, Aline Salheb
Lopes, Maria Helena Baena de Moraes
Abstract: The purpose was to assess the relationship between locus of control and the contraceptive method chosen. It was used the Levenson's Multidimensional Locus of Control Scale and 191 women was interviewed. Users of male condoms presented greater Internality than the monthly contraceptive injection users. Regarding the External locus of control (Powerful Others), the implant users presented less Externality than those who used condoms, tubal ligation, three-monthly injections and the IUD. Regarding the External locus of control (Chance), the implant users presented smaller scores than those who opted for tubal ligation, three-monthly injections and the IUD. It was observed also that monthly injections users presented smaller scores of External locus of control (Chance) than the women who were three-monthly injections users.
