This shows that women mainly relied on the advice of FWW for the choice of a suitable contraceptive method rather than taking the decision themselves as to the choice on the basis of merit and suitability of a contraceptive method.
However, in case of female surgery, although 41 percent women accepted the method on the advice of FWW, yet other 35 percent took the decision of choice on their own on merit, considering the method as more effective.
In the case of ever use of contraceptive methods also, the major reason for the choice of any method, except vaginal methods, rhythm, and withdrawal, was that FWW recommended that method.
It is observed that in case of current use also, the major reason to choose IUD, injection, condom, and oral pill was the recommendation or advice of FWW. The second reason to choose a contraceptive method, except oral pill and female sterilisation, was the recommendation of other acceptors or someone else.
