Ankura Hospital Organizes an Awareness Campaign to Choose the Right Birth Control Measures

Encourages people to consult their Gynaecologist to dispel myths about contraceptives and choose the right one.

In response to evolving discussions and concerns surrounding contraceptive safety, Ankura Hospital announced the launch of an awareness campaign on birth control and family planning in consultation with the Gynaecologist. The objective of the campaign is to encourage people to adopt responsible behaviour by choosing the right contraceptive and avoid the anxiety and challenges of unplanned pregnancy. The campaign also aims to sensitize reaffirming its commitment to empowering individuals through informed decision on use of contraceptives with a focus on safety and efficacy.

In India, the general awareness of contraception is almost universal (98% among women and 98.6% among men: NFHS-3). According to Both NFHS (National Family Health Survey) and DLHS (District Level Household and Facility Survey) surveys the use of contraceptives is generally rising. Contraceptive use among married women (aged 15-49 years) was 56.3% in NFHS-3 (an increase of 8.1 percentage points from NFHS-2) while corresponding increase between DLHS-2 & 3 is relatively lesser (from 52.5% to 54.0%). Although there is awareness, there is still a lot of hesitation and indecisiveness on the use and choice of the contraceptive methods, not only in rural but also in urban areas. Lot of misconceptions and myths about use of contraceptives are also responsible for people avoiding them. In an effort to bridge this gap Ankura Hospital has launched the campaign to invite couples to consult the Gynaecologist to help identify and understand which contraceptive suits them best.

As the landscape of contraceptives continues to expand with newer options and advancements, Ankura Hospital recognizes the importance of addressing potential risks associated with these methods. Acknowledging the significance of recent discussions around safety, Ankura Hospital emphasizes the importance of engaging in thorough consultations with healthcare professionals to understand potential risks and benefits tailored to individual health profiles.

Dr. V P Jyotsna, Senior Consultant Obstetrician & Gynecologist, at Ankura Hospital, remarked, "In the ever-evolving field of contraceptives, it's essential for individuals to have access to accurate information and engage in open discussions with healthcare providers. While contraceptives offer valuable benefits, understanding potential risks is equally crucial. An open conversation about the choice of contraceptive helps tackle misconceptions and ensure protection."

The Campaign focus on

· Safety-Oriented Approach: Prioritizing thorough discussions regarding potential risks and benefits with healthcare professionals.

· Personalized Guidance: Crafting recommendations based on individual health histories and risk factors.

· Creating Awareness: Encouraging individuals to remain vigilant and promptly report any unusual symptoms or concerns for proactive attention.

The campaign aims to create an individuals can make informed choices about birth control and prioritizing their reproductive health and well-being under the guidance of healthcare experts.
