A retrospective descriptive study of 402 persons who attended the family planning office located in the health area of the "Santos Suárez" Polyclinic during 2 years, starting from 1993, was conducted aimed at identifying some important aspects of the work carried out in this service. Data were obtained from a survey and from each patient’s medical history. The percentage analysis was applied to the collected information. The results showed that 74.6 % of those who visited the office were women, and that only 10 % of them went with their husbands. Most of men showed no interest in participating in the election of a contraceptive method. The most recommended contraceptive methods were the oral contraceptives and the intrauterine devices with 44 and 33.7 %, respectively. Bleeding was the most frequent cause to stop their use
