Abstract


The study of the external factors of opposition to the use of contraceptive methods by women in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo was initiated to find out what influences women of childbearing have to resist to use of the contraceptive methods. We conducted a questionnaire survey of 2,373 women in Kinshasa, which allowed us to identify the neutral or external factors that are the basis of resistance to contraception, they are: - The gender of the head of the household; - The crisis of society; - Lack of women education; - Lack of awareness among women by qualified agents. These factors are the targets to be overcome through appropriate scientific actions for greater contraceptive practice. The Epidata Software under the SPSS version 20 application has been used to establish consistency between the literature review and the experimental observations in the field.
