This article reports on research aimed at defining strategies to empower Mexican women in their family planning decisions and to establish commitments and responsibilities with their partners. A systematic review was conducted, including PubMed, Redalyc and Scopus, and ten original articles from two continents and diverse populations were included. Of the studies conducted in Mexico and Latin America, none provided a proposal to implement improvements in the adoption of a family planning method among women who experience intimate partner violence. It is concluded that bioethical training and education of health personnel can contribute to ensure that the information and decision-making process by the woman or the couple is carried out in accordance with bioethics, seeking individual benefit and protection of the wellbeing of the woman and, therefore, of her family.
