Oped

Are injectable contraceptives advisable?

Govt of India has recently introduced injectable contraceptives DMPA as a contraceptive choice. Issues are

  1. Injectable contraceptives can have adverse impact on women health.
  2. As the existing contraceptive choices are not made readily acceptable to women, introduction of a new choice that have complications of its own will not help.
  3. Fertility shall be seen as an issue of socio economic condition rather than just as an health issue.

Way forward

  1. Government shall ensure that informed choice exists for women.
  2. Gender bias in reproductive health program need to be addressed.
