Abstract


The study on contraceptive use and unmet need for family planning is the key to understanding the change in fertility and improving reproductive health. Family planning program aims to not only achieve population stabilization but also to promote reproductive health and reduce maternal, infant & child mortality and morbidity. In this study an attempt has been made to assess the family planning practices adopted in the rural Shamirpet. Probability proportion sampling was done and 402 women were selected from 13 villages. Prevalence of contraception was found to be 61.7%. Permanent methods were preferred over temporary methods. Total unmet need for family planning was 11.7%. The contraceptive prevalence rate found in the present study is higher than the district figures and is on par with the state statistics. Unmet needs also are low compared to state figures.
