Women with unmet need are those who are fecund and sexually active but are not using any method of contraception, and report not wanting any more children or wanting to delay the next child. The concept of unmet need points to the gap between women’s reproductive intentions and their contraceptive behavior.

Family planning has always been the main emphasis in population policies adopted by the Government of India.Gender inequality, preference of sons over daughters, low standard of living, poverty, traditional thought processes of Indians, age-old cultural norms continue to cause poor family planning practices all across the country.
