Contraception was the only way to avoid/prevent pregnancy. The use of contraceptives was an effort of the Keluarga Berencana (KB) program to suppress and regulate population growth. There were various types of contraceptives from some contraceptive methods available. This study discusses an overview of contraceptives' use at most by women with a history of confinement, where Indonesian Christian University Hospital took place in 2015-2016. Data was taken by descriptive survey method. Obtained 95 women who analysed the installation of contraception and mentioned some factors, such as age, occupation, education, and the total number of children when using contraception. Based on the result, it was concluded that IUD was used the most by the woman as a contraceptive. The possibility was because acceptors of KB, on average, were at the age above 30 years, so they tend to use contraception in the long term. While based on the level of education, the categories of high school graduates use more KB than the bachelor degree. Based on the type of work, homemakers become KB acceptors and the highest in terms of the total number of children. Most of the acceptors have a history of having two kids. It indicates that the awareness and knowledge of women to KB is good enough.
