dc.description.abstractConsidering how many and when or if one wants children are decisions that everyone must make. Contraception can be used to help one obtain the number and/or spacing between children that one wants. Fertility and contraception are a crucial part of a woman's life. Seeing women make these choices and the effects that these choices have on them and those surrounding them has made me interested in the subject. I wanted to learn more about the different types of contraceptives that exist, which methods people use the most, and why. To do this, I felt that it was important to compare two different cultures with different economic backgrounds to see if these factors made a difference in contraceptive choices. I found that while culture and economics may make a difference in how many people use contraceptives they do not make a difference in the methods that are used the most. Modern contraceptives that involve the sole participation of the woman are primarily used because both societies are still male dominated, culturally and economically.en_US
