Our study goal was to determine which type of hormonal or non-hormonal contraception method nondiabetic women with past GDM used in their first 6 months postpartum. Results showed that Progestogen-only pill (40.0%) and Levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device (23.1%) were the most used contraceptives. Around 56% of the patients were not satisfied using the Barrier method, whereas 67% of the patients in the less than 25 kg/m2 BMI group reported adverse events. Special consideration must be applied in order to support obese patients and those perpetuating noxious habits.
