In addition, hormonal contraceptives (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol) reduce the risk of heavy menstrual bleeding, dysmenorrhea and some types of cancer. The research aimed to evaluate predictors of unintended pregnancy reporting at medical students of University of Timisoara in 2014-2015. The study population included 1,298 women of 18-25 years-old, 58.8% of them being first year medicine students, and 41.2% last year medicine students. The mean age of first year female medicine students was significantly lower than the age of the last year female medicine students, <0.001. The working method was the transverse population survey. Unintended pregnancies were reported as 4.2% for one pregnancy and 0.5% for two or more pregnancies, with no significant difference between juniors and teens. In the multivariate model, major predictors (odds ratio, OR > 3) for unwanted pregnancies were: active sexual life (in the last 3 months, OR = 4.175), followed by contraceptive methods such as coitus interruptus (OR = 3.355), calendar method (OR = 3.235) and spermicidal substances (OR = 3.126).
