If the woman's closest friend has ever used pills to regulate her period because of a suspected pregnancy, REGMEDLOCFRND1 indicates the location where she obtained the pills. This includes only women whose closest friend used pills as the first or only method needed to regulate their period; for women whose closest friend used pills after trying another method first, see REGLASTMEDLOCFRND1.

If the friend has ever had an abortion to terminate a pregnancy, this variable refers only to a suspected pregnancy after the most recent pregnancy that was aborted.

The question associated with this variable was included in the female questionnaire.


There are no comparability issues.
