Introduction: Studies have shown that women are not always satisfied with the effects of contraception and that contraceptive advice is perceived as non-specific. Aim: The purpose of this study was to investigate what contraceptive women have chosen to use in the different phases of their reproductive lives, and what they felt had influenced their choice.Method: A retrospective cross-sectional comparative study with a quantitative approach. A survey with fixed and multiple-choice options was sent to five hundred 45-year old women. Result: The study shows that various birth controls are different in the normal reproductive life. The birth control pills , condoms and hormone coil were the contraceptive which women were most satisfied with through the reproductive life cycle, partially supported in previous research. The study also shows that the pill and condoms were most common contraceptives before pregnancy. Copper coil and hormone coil was the most common contraception after pregnancy. Condom was the most common contraceptive during several contraceptive reproductive phases. The women stated that the most common reason to discontinue a contraceptive was pregnancy desire followed by concerns about side effects. The study also shows that women have great integrity in the choice of contraception. Conclusion: The  practical significance of this study is that it can be used for counseling on contraceptive use through the life cycle. The scientific significance of the study is to promote women`s reproductive health by being able to provide such specific advice as possible.
