Family Planning for Women and Couples following Fistula Repair

This booklet provides clients with information about family planning methods for couples following a woman’s fistula repair. The booklet provides a list of questions to be answered by the client in making her decision about which FP method to use, depending on whether she wishes to become pregnant again:

  • Do you need to delay pregnancy during the first 9–12 months following fistula repair, but want to have a baby shortly after that period?
  • How much time do you want to allow between this first baby and the next?
  • Do you want to stop having babies completely?
  • Are you unsure whether you are finished having babies but know you do not want to get pregnant in the next three or more years?
