Objective: To identify sociodemographic and health services factors associated with receipt of immediate postpartum (IPP) contraception and the type of contraceptive method received. Materials and methods: We used the National Health and Nutrition Survey (Ensanut), 2018-19, which contains information on 4 548 women aged 12-49 years who gave birth. We described receipt of IPP contraception and method type and used multivariable logistic (n=4 544) and multinomial regression (n=2 903) to examine receipt of any modern method and type of method. Results: 65% of women received IPP contraception. 56.8% of adolescents received long-acting reversible contraception (43.7% IUD & 13.1% implant). Being indigenous, having only one child, or receiving care in State Health Services/IMSS-Prospera or private sector facilities were associated with lower odds of receiving IPP contraception. Conclusions: We identify progress in the IPP contraception coverage among adolescents. Disparities persist in receipt of IPP contraception by type of health insurance.
