Introduction

1.1 Background of the Study

The use of contraceptive dates to many years ago before acceptance of western education by most communities in Nigeria.

Their adoption is to check population growth which is in line with one of the goals of national family planning control programmes.

In Nigeria the use of family planning control methods among our grand parent are majorly traditional in practicality, among these methods.

  • Prolonmily planning
  • Breast Feeding
  • Abere (scarification band) usually worn by woman
  • Commotional both also used by the women.
  • Abstinence which could be intermittent
  • Natural fa

However, the use of modern family-planning control methods which are majorly synthesized hormonal-drugs, barrier substances like intra-uterine contraceptive Device “IUCD”, condoms, spermicides etc, have adopted worldwide to promote family health demographic goals by spacing and preventing birth. To complement this range of technology methods, new and innovative public sector system of contraceptives, delivery system such as community-based distribution new work and subsidized commercial distribution have emerged in many communities.

(HUTCHINGS, JANE, SAUNDER 1985)

In Nigeria, most of these modern techniques/methods are directed at women. Hence, choosing of family-planning method depend largely on the women. But she is expected to consult her husband who most of the time disagrees with most of the methods that will prevent enjoying sexual relationship. In desperation most women go to family-planning clinics presenting another man as their husband or present fake letters of use of the family-planning methods without the knowledge of the husband. Hence, the usage of methods that will prevent her from getting unwanted pregnancy.

From the above, it can be deduced that most Nigeria men have always being hindrance in the usage of contraceptive methods that will prevent them from attaining optimum sexual satisfaction. This is with the believe that sexual activities cannot be natural as possible using any of barrier methods of contraceptive e.g condom.

In addition to the above, due to educational pursuit, it had been found that family-planning played an active part in the embracement of family planning methods by mort adolescents in our local communities. Though, it was not initially meant for adolescent, yet thousands of them have adopted one method or the other without proper counseling by trained and experienced family-planning providers who would have being in the best position to recommend the correct method good for individuals of pre-marital status.

1.8 Definition of Terms

Family Planning:

Is the voluntary and action taken by individuals to prevent delay or achieve a pregnancy.

Family Planning Services:

Include counseling and education, preconception care, screening and laboratory tests, and family planning methods. The risk of serious illness or death resulting from pregnancy is far greater than the risk involved in using any birth control method. Birth control also eliminates the unnecessary need for abortions. Abortions after three months risk the mother’s life and impair her chances of a healthy pregnancy later. This risk is compounded because many abortions are done in secret by unskilled persons in unclean surroundings causing infections and death. Sensible birth control prevents this needless suffering and death.
