|Necessity Of Birth Control, Family Planning In Nigeria by Sterope(f): 11:34am On Jul 24, 2018|
It has become a common observation to everyone that what we often say is a blessing could turn to be a curse as in the case of increased population in Nigeria. Population growth has been a problematic issue all over the world, especially our country Nigeria and due to the economic situation in the country there is need to sensitize people on family planning and birth control.
Talking about birth control, which is also known as contraception and fertility control, is a method or device used to prevent pregnancy. Birth control has been used since ancient times, but effective and safe methods of birth control only became available in the 20th century. Planning, making available, and using birth control is called family planning. Some cultures limit or discourage access to birth control because they consider it to be morally, religiously, or politically undesirable.
Family planning allows people to attain their desired number of children and determine the spacing of pregnancies, however, another question that can really come to mind is this. What is family? The World Health Organization (WHO, 2013) stated that family planning allows individuals and couples to anticipate and attain their desired number of children and the spacing and timing of their births.
Women, men, or couples can choose from many contraceptive methods to help them plan their family and prevent an unplanned pregnancy. They need to know that if they are having sex regularly and do not use a contraceptive method, about 8 of every 10 women will become pregnant during the next 12 months.
Do not get confused on which method to use for your family planning or contraception. The below is the method of family planning.
These methods contain hormones called estrogen and progestin that are similar to the estrogen and progesterone a woman makes in her own body. They include pills, injections, and implants. Hormonal methods work by preventing eggs from being released from the ovaries, thickening cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the uterus, and thinning the lining of the uterus to prevent implantation of fertilized egg.
INTRAUTERINE CONTRACEPTIVE DEVICES (IUCD)
IUCD is a type of family planning method contraceptive method in which a flexible device is inserted into the through the virgina into the uterine cavity by a trained service provider. It is a safe highly effective and long lasting type of contraceptive method.
These are devices that attempt to prevent pregnancy by physically preventing sperm from entering the uterus. The sperm is thus blocked from reaching the egg. They include male condoms, female condoms, cervical caps, diaphragms and contraceptive sponges with spermicides. They do not change the way the woman’s or man’s body works and cause very few side effects.
There are operations that make it almost impossible for a man or a woman to have any children. Since these operations are permanent, they are only good for those women or men who are certain that they do not want any more children.
The surgery for the man is known as Vasectomy in which the tubes that carry the sperm from the testicles to the penis are cut. The operation does not change a man’s ability to have sex or to feel sexual pleasure.
The surgery for the woman is known as tubal ligation and as the name implies the tubes that carry the eggs to the uterus are cut or tied. It does not change a woman’s monthly bleeding or her ability to have sex and sexual pleasure.
These are methods to avoid pregnancy that does not require the use of any devices or chemicals or medicines. The methods are breastfeeding for the first 6 months also known as Lactational Amenorrhea and the fertility awareness method.
In conclusion, family planning (FP) and birth control is a key component of basic health services. It benefits the health and wellbeing of women, children, families, and their communities. Enabling couples to determine whether, when, and how often to have children is vital to safe motherhood and child health.
The social and economic benefits of family planning as discussed earlier are numerous, including the family’s ability to better support their children economically and socially, increased equality between men and women, higher productivity and better incomes, and decreased burden on the public and environmental resources.

Those that need it most are the ones not practising it. They keep breeding like pigs and bringing in kids they can't cater for in an over-populated country.

Population isn't the problem
Singapore doubled it's population and still doing well.
India had 500 million people about 40 years ago and experienced famine.
Today with over 1 billion people, India is exporting food and has good economy.
What about the US?
325 million in population but throwing away food etc and is arguably the most powerful nation of the world

Population is a big problem bro... ask China back in the 70s before their "one child" policy.
|Re: Necessity Of Birth Control, Family Planning In Nigeria by Nobody: 4:21pm On Jul 24, 2018|
POOR PEOPLE always hinge their pregnancies on God, saying that “na god ooo”, whenever pregnant .
The MEN suddenly forget how they sneak in at nights to phock their wives.
When the ladies eventually get pregnant they blame God for it.
I have always said it that, BLACK MAN has issues.
The whites that are wealthier still control their penis and birth rates.
US presidents however rich, still manage their births.
BLACKS create and recycle poverty.
That’s why poverty is ENDEMIC and will remain a pandemonium in our midst.
I learnt that by 2050, our population will surpass that of the US and we think that’s an achievement.
Just imagine our current POPULATION, meanwhile CALIFORNIA a state in the US, is two third of the entire Nigeria
Meanwhile our population is almost 180 million, Lagos is almost 18million if not more than where as, that of the entire US is 325million, yet they grant GREEN CARDS to people across the world.
That’s a planned society.
PLEASE, I am calling on those who propagate the gospel BABY MAKING FACTORIES, including religions ( Muslims) and various beliefs who support such to sheath their manhood...... PLEASE !!!

some people are still banking on that scriptures that says. . . "be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. . ."
Fam. The Earth is already filled up
the wahala going on in the North in the name of Almajiri is just too much.
Dont give birth to kids you can't carter for. There's a likely chance you might go to Hell because of negligence!

very beautiful post op. the population of Nigeria is causing us great harm. especially in the nothern part of the country ,and In the cities.And it seems just few Nigerians are concerned about this problem. it still all boils down to the government. they really have a big part to play.And i hope they start soon

We don’t need birth control in Nigeria, all we need is feminism. It is already working in Japan, Western countries, and South Nigeria; divorce rates are increasing and educated people are getting laid less than our Ancestors.
Now we just need to either deploy feminism to the North or divide/restructure Nigeria.
|Re: Necessity Of Birth Control, Family Planning In Nigeria by ObservantFellow: 4:24pm On Jul 24, 2018|
Dem no dey beg shit to smell. Anybody wey dey interested in breeding like a fowl should go ahead. Na body go tell am
As for those that bring children into this world to suffer

The govt of Nigeria is toying with the future. Population explosion will be one major challenge - if legislation to check/control birth rate is not introduced soonest.
Unskilled population is growing in the poorest parts of the country, fuelled by unchecked emigration from Niger and Chad.
|Re: Necessity Of Birth Control, Family Planning In Nigeria by Donbrig: 4:27pm On Jul 24, 2018|
Nice one. Population is already a big problem in Nigeria, the govt is aware of this, but our outdated cultural beliefs and illiteracy is a very big factor that has always hindered birth control in Nigeria. It will be very difficult to control our rapid growing population at the moment, because having sex carelessly, to reduce stress and frustration is what many Nigerians are now good at.
