Abstract
Family planning could avert a significant number of maternal mortality and contributes to child survival with its focus on women's rights. Generally, a long-acting reversible contraceptive is more effective and cover all the advantage and eliminates the disadvantages of other types of contraceptives. The acceptance and utilization of long-acting reversible contraceptive including implanon were very low in many developing countries including Ethiopia. The purpose of this study was to assess the level of discontinuation and to identify variables influencing Implanon utilization. A cross-sectional design was conducted between January to December 2018 in Debre Tabor town. In the community, a total of 132 women who have been using or discontinuing Implanon during the study period were selected. Face-to-face interviews using a structured questionnaire were conducted for data collection. The data were entered, cleaned and analyzed by a statistical package for social sciences version 20. The data were processed and analyzed by a statistical package for social sciences version 20 using descriptive and analytical statistics including chi-square test that identified the association between some selected independent variables and implanon discontinuation. The overall implanon discontinuation in the year 2018 was 16.7% in Debre Tabor town. The most frequently mentioned reason for implanon discontinuation was health-related issues (31.8%), side effects (27.3%), desire to have more children (22.7%) and method shift (18.2%). Factors associated with Implanon discontinuation were developing side effects, women who have living children and not providing counseling service. Implanon discontinuation among Implanon users in Debre Tabor town during the year 2018 was found to be high and the most frequently mentioned rationale was health-related issues. Health care providers should provide counseling before Implanon insertion.
