Family planning and abortion prevention is an important area in modern gynecology. Popularization and dissemination of various methods of contraception remains one of the main tasks of family planning services. In highly developed countries, hormonal contraception dominates among the methods of birth control. In Russia, China and a number of other countries, the spread of the latter is largely hindered by the stereotypes established in society about the severe side effects of this method of contraception.
Thus, according to a study by Shanghai University conducted in 1991, 60% of respondents did not want to use oral hormonal contraceptives (OGC) due to the lack of confidence in their harmlessness to the body, 42% were sure of their harm, and 30% believed that OGK will harm the fetus in the event of pregnancy (Guo Y. et al., 1991).
