Background contraceptive use in india
Background: Contraceptive use in India Indian women

  • CPR is 56% among currently married women

    • Sterilization is most common method (66% of use)

    • Condoms (9% of use) and rhythm (9% of use)

  • Temporary method users are more likely to be better educated and wealthier than sterilized women

  • One year discontinuation rate for temporary methods is high: condoms 45%, pills 49%, rhythm method 32%

-All data from NFHS-3, 2005-06

Research objectives
Research Objectives Indian women

  • Examine differences in demographic characteristics and use patterns among temporary method users in urban Uttar Pradesh, India

  • Descriptive analysis using contraceptive data from a two year period

Measurement learning evaluation mle
Measurement, Learning & Evaluation (MLE) Indian women

  • Evaluation of the Urban Reproductive Health Initiative (URHI):

    • 5year project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

    • Goal is to increase modern contraceptive use

    • Four countries: Senegal; Kenya; Nigeria; and Uttar Pradesh, India

  • Carolina Population Center (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) in partnership with International Center for Research on Women

Data for analysis
Data for Analysis Indian women

  • Longitudinal surveys of women in 4 intervention cities:

    • Baseline (2010) - Representative sample of married women 15-49 with an oversample of slum populations (N=17,643)

    • Mid-term sub-sample (2012) - 85.8% response rate (N=5,790)

  • Contraceptive calendar used to collect month-by-month data on contraceptive use, non-use, reason for discontinuation, pregnancy and birth, for 2 year period between surveys

Methods Indian women

  • Construct meaningful categories of women based on patterns of contraceptive use during the calendar period

  • Descriptive comparison of socio-demographic characteristics, fertility desires, discontinuation and method switching, and pregnancy outcomes

  • Assess reasons for discontinuation by order of discontinuation during the calendar period

Results: Method use characteristics intentions

* Use of sterilization only

Limitations 2 year period

  • Potential for underreporting pregnancy and terminations

  • Potential for data heaping

  • Calendar may not be best measure of use for temporary methods most common in India

Conclusions 2 year period

  • Identified a number of socio-demographic differences between temporary method users during a 2 year time period

  • Relatively high incidence of pregnancy and termination among multiple method users

  • Traditional method users vs. condom users

  • Discontinuation due to problems with the method persists and leads to questions about service quality
