80 percent of sexually active people between 15 to 49 years of age in Switzerland use some form of contraception. Condoms and hormonal contraceptives are the most frequently used methods, followed by sterilization and the contraceptive coil. The "morning-after pill" is only very rarely used in Switzerland. These are some of the results drawn from data of past Swiss health surveys of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
Since 1992, the FSO has been conducting a survey every five years. On behalf of Obsan, Swiss TPH analysed the responses with regards to sexual behaviour and contraception to compile the first Swiss contraception report.
