Resumen

GOMEZ-INCLAN, Sofía  y  DURAN-ARENAS, Luis. Teenagers’ access to contraception in Mexico City. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2017, vol.59, n.3, pp.236-247. ISSN 0036-3634.  https://doi.org/10.21149/7891.

Objective:

To study and understand the phenomenon of access to contraceptive methods in Mexican teenages, through the use of the Levesque model, which allows for the observation of both the system and the system and the user´s participation in the access process.

Materials and methods:

A qualitative study was conducted with focus groups technique in a middle and high school of Mexico City.

Results:

The perception of ability to access to health care is limited, teenagers do not know the mechanisms of care or supply of contraceptive methods. Prejudices of service providers provoke a negative reaction. The family is a source of information for adolescents to make decisions.

Conclusions:

The model allowed the assessment of access to contraceptive methods in teenagers. It were identified different aspects that act as barriers to access and may inform health care providers about this population in their sexual and reproductive health.
