Most women who get sterilised in India never use another contraceptive method first to help space out pregnancies, which comes with significant health risks

Women in India are not being fully educated on contraception usage and what they are putting in their bodies. Awareness of contraception is near-universal among married women in India.However, the vast majority of married Indians reported significant problems in accessing a choice of contraceptive methods. 

​In 2015, there was an average 58% of women who used contraceptives, with female sterilization still being the most preferred and favored among 91% of women.Higher rates of sterilization are seen among women who hold less education than those with more education. Those with higher education have lower rates due to the delay of getting married and childbirth. 77% of the women who underwent sterilization had not used an alternative contraception prior to the procedure and most women were under the age of 26, who seem to have many options available in regards to protection.The preoccupation with birth limitation by India's family planning programme has meant that it has not been able to successfully reach young married women who are in the process of building their family and enable them to meet their family planning intentions.
