Knowing the contraceptive strategies used by women in a given population allows for better planning of guidance actions and distribution of methods by health teams. The purpose of this study was to analyze the use of contraceptive methods by users of a Family Health Strategy (FHS) in Rondonópolis, MT. This is a prospective, cross-sectional and quantitative study. FHS André Maggi users, aged between 18 and 49 years, were included. The sampling was by convenience, being included women who attended the health unit during the data collection period, from February 1st to May 13th, 2021. Data were collected through a structured questionnaire containing information on sociodemographic aspects, clinical trials and use of contraceptives. 110 women participated in the study, with a mean age of 29.1 years. A frequency of 78.38% (n=88) women use contraceptive methods, with a predominance of oral contraceptives (54.55%), injectable contraceptives (13.64%) and male condoms (12.50%). The indication of contraceptive methods was mostly performed by Doctors (47.72%) and Nurses (20.45%). A total of 83 (75.45%) women received guidance on contraception. The users of the FHS studied showed a high prevalence of use of contraceptive methods. It is necessary that the entire multidisciplinary team of the FHS is involved in the use of strategies that seek to promote family planning, taking into account the characteristics of women in the area covered by the unit.
