Methods: A cross Sectional study by interview method of Eligible couples from august 2015 to January 2016 at TMMC and RC Moradabad was done.
Results: Contraceptive prevalence was found to be 27.08%. Among the permanent sterilization methods, the most commonly used method was Tubectomy (21.5%). Among the spacing methods Condoms, Oral Contraceptive Pills and Intra-Uterine Devices were used by 12%, 13% and 13% of the eligible couples respectively.
Conclusions: Total CPR in our study population was found to be 27.08% as compared to 40.4% of India which suggests a lot of motivation and education is further required.
