Contraception in professional terms is popularly known as family planning. Few events in medical practice invoke such a great motion as family planning. Perhaps, nothing is as distressing and confusing to an individual when a pregnancy has to be terminated.

For this reason, I will be dealing with the issue of contraception in the articles that follow. Family planning, to put it simply, is a procedure or method to control the number of children and or pregnancy that the family or couple can look after.
