Family Planning, What Family Planning Means for Dads and Moms

Family Planning - What Dads and Moms Need to Know


If you are about to start a family with your spouse, you will often hear about "family planning". But what really does it mean? Family planning is often understood as prevention of pregnancy. However, it is more than just that.

What Family Planning Really Means

Family planning refers to:
  • Deciding how many children you will have
  • Planning when to have a child and the time interval between children
  • Selecting suitable birth control methods to prevent pregnancy

What Family Planning Does NOT Mean

Due to lack of information on family planning, many couples may make decisions that can haunt them for life. Here is what you should know about family planning:

Family planning is a joint decision between the husband and wife . It is important to make informed decisions based on your as well as your spouse's needs. For this, couples should work toward developing an open communication channel between both partners with consideration for each other's feelings and desires.

Here are some common birth control methods and their effectiveness (according to the Family Planning Council).

Birth Control Method Effectiveness or Chances of NOT Getting Pregnant
