A convenience sample of 162 family planning clients in Kenya, the Dominican Republic and Mexico provided data for an evaluation of the acceptability of two woman-controlled contraceptive methods that may also provide disease protection. Women significantly preferred contraceptive film over foaming tablets at two sites: In Kenya, 86% of participants said they would rather use the film and 14%, the tablets; in Mexico, these proportions were 58% and 30%, respectively. Although a slight majority of women in the Dominican Republic preferred the film also, about one-half of participants there and in Mexico complained that the film sometimes stuck to their fingers during insertion.
