Periodic abstinence in the Philippines: new findings from a national survey


, : Periodic abstinence in the Philippines: new findings from a national survey. Studies in Family Planning 18(1): 32-41

This paper presents the main survey findings from a nationally representative sample of 607 users of periodic abstinence methods in the Philippines in 1984. The survey was conducted because of the widespread popularity of periodic abstinence in the Philippines and a lack of detailed knowledge about how the method is understood and practiced in the Philippines. Findings are presented on the prevalence of the different types of periodic abstinence methods, the nature of their use, knowledge about the various periodic abstinence methods, instruction received, perceived advantages and disadvantages, the husband's role, and the use-effectiveness of periodic abstinence both with and without backup methods. The implications of these findings for program management and for future research are also discussed.
