Family planning administrations are characterized as “educational, complete clinical or social exercises which empower people, including minors, to decide uninhibitedly the number and dividing of their children and to choose the methods by which this might be achieved”. Family arranging may include thought of the number of kids a lady wishes to have, including the decision to have no kids, just as the age at which she wishes to have them. These issues are impacted by outer factors, for example, conjugal circumstances, career considerations, monetary position, and any handicaps that may influence their capacity to have youngsters and raise them. On the off chance that explicitly dynamic, family arranging may include the utilization of contraception and different strategies to control the circumstance of proliferation.

Raising a child requires a person to be ready not just in terms of money, but also in terms of time, energy, and the readiness to raise a child. The idea behind family planning is to ensure that any couple, man, or lady who has children has the assets that are required to finish this objective. A couple may choose any method of conception and before doing so one may investigate the alternatives of regular birth, surrogacy, manual semen injection, or adoption. While in times if they do not wish to have children at a particular time then one may forestall pregnancy through anti-conception medication, contraceptives, or physical insurance and counteraction, or maybe even egg freezing.

World Contraception Day is supported by a coalition of 15 international Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), governmental organizations, and scientific and medical societies with an interest in sexual and reproductive health and is sponsored by Bayer AG.

In India, sex education remains a taboo and all information that the youth receive about everything associated with sex education is through partially correct sources. While there are ample resources there isn’t a proper means to reach that source. Unwanted and underage pregnancy remains one of the many threats towards girl children in both developing and developed countries, it is important to educate adolescents and adults regarding the same.
