Abstract: Abstract Introduction: Birth prevention is defined by World Health Organization as "a mode of thinking and living that is adopted voluntarily, upon the basis of knowledge, attitudes and responsible decision by individuals and couples, in order to promote the health and welfare of family groups and thus contribute effectively to the social development of a country" Health promotion and cost effective activities are promoted by family planning, prevention of maternal mortality rate as well as child mortality rate by 30 percent and 10 percent respectively can be achieved by this service Although Pakistan has been introduced the services of birth prevention right after its independence but rapid growing population is a big challenge faced by the state yet It has been decades that Pakistan is battling with the issue of conception prevention. (Obaid, A.2018). The use of birth prevention methods results in decreasing the fertility rate while in developing countries political barriers. Proper counselling regarding birth prevention is essential to avoid the risk of unplanned pregnancy among women (pegu et al.,2014). Objective: The objective of present study was to assess the knowledge and practice of married women regarding use of contraceptive methods at a Public Sector Hospital Lahore. Methodology: A Cross sectional quantitative study was done on 98 married females about the knowledge and practices of contraceptive methods at a Public Sector Hospital Lahore. Data was collected by the researchers from family planning center and outpatient department and was analyzed by using IBM SSPS version 23. Results: A total of 80 women have participated in this study. 73 participants were having good knowledge of contraceptive methods. Majority, 63 of the participants were agreed that health education is very important for women who want to use contraceptive methods. 64 participants were aware of that sterilization (tying a woman’s fallopian tubes) is a way of preventing pregnancy. Almost 68% of the participants were having knowledge regarding male sterilization, that (Vasectomy) is an effective way to avoid pregnancy. 55 (70.5%) females were having access to family planning services at hospitals. A majority of the participants, (36%) never use contraceptive methods before. Likewise, some of the participants, 41(51%) said that they practice breast feeding, withdrawal, herbal traditional contraceptive methods to prevent pregnancy. A small number of the participants, 24 (30%), responded that they have never used artificial contraceptive method (Condom, Intrauterine Device, (Tubectomy) to prevent unplanned pregnancy.28 (35.0%) responded they have fear of side effects of contraceptive that’s why they do not want to use birth control/contraceptives. Conclusion: After analyzing data the researcher has concluded that majority of the married females who were coming at Lahore General Hospital have very good knowledge of almost all contraceptive methods but they are not properly practicing it. There were several factors effecting the practice of married women regarding the contraception e.g. religious beliefs, male dominant society, and fear of side effects. It is important for the planning centers provide accurate information and mental support regarding contraception knowledge and practices to married women. Also clarify misconception and misunderstanding of married women regarding contraception.
