Abstract

Objective Associations between age and patient-reported quality of family planning services were examined among young women in Mexico. Methods A repeated cross-sectional analysis of survey data collected in 2006, 2009, and 2014 was performed. Data from women aged 15-29 years who had not undergone sterilization and were currently using a modern contraceptive method were included. The primary outcome was high-quality care, defined as positive responses to all five quality items regarding contraceptive services included in the survey. Multivariable logistic regression and marginal probabilities were used to compare adolescents and women aged 20-29 years. The responses of respondents using different contraceptive methods were compared. Results Data were included from 15 835 individuals. The multivariable analysis demonstrated lower odds of reporting high-quality care among women aged 15-19 years (odds ratio 0.73; 95% confidence interval 0.60-0.88) and 20-24 years (odds ratio 0.85; 95% confidence interval 0.75-0.96) compared with women aged 25-29 years. Adolescents using hormonal and long-acting reversible contraception had significantly lower odds of reporting high-quality care compared with women aged 25-29. Conclusions Adolescents in Mexico reported a lower quality of family planning services compared with young adult women. Continued research and policies are needed to improve the quality of contraceptive services.
