THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Family Planning means deciding when the best time to have children is, and what is the appropriate number of children for a couple to have. The right time to have children is when a woman is between 20 and 35 years old, when a woman has not been pregnant for the last 2-3 years, when a woman has fewer than 4 children, when a woman has no illness that would place herself or her baby in danger and when the couple wants to have a baby.
Always let the clients decide for themselves on the method that they will use, and help them choose the method that is most appropriate for them. Factors to consider include the age of the woman, woman's reproductive stage, the effectiveness of a method, the woman's health status and personal considerations. No method is best for all women, nor is any method best for a woman throughout her reproductive life.
