Women in India consider shy when it comes to taboo topics like sex and using a condom. But, the scenario has changed now single women are using condoms more.
The campaigns and planning of Indian government have paid off finally. As the new survey revealed 99% of married women and men know at least one contraceptive method. Single women, between 20-24 age are using condoms more as the ratio grows 12% from just 2%. And, married women are demanding family planning method.
A survey conducted by the Ministry of Health revealed, “the use of condoms had gone up in 10 years from 2% to 12% among sexually active unmarried women aged 15 to 49 years. The maximum use of condoms among unmarried women was seen in the 20-24 years age group. The survey also found that three out of eight men believed contraception was “women’s business”, and that the man should not have to worry about it.”
As reported by the Times of India, “the knowledge of contraceptive methods is almost universal in the country and 99% of married women and men aged 15-49 know of at least one such method. However, this has not translated into widespread safe sex. The overall contraceptive prevalence rate (CPR) was just 54% among married women aged 15 to 49, with only 10% using a modern contraceptive method.”
Well, now we can believe the women have broken the barriers and opting for safer sex.
