Post natal child maternal management is another important aspect of the reproductive and child health care programme.

Question-3: Removal of gonads cannot be considered as a contraceptive option. Why?

It will lead to infertility & both male and female will be dependent on hormones in their remaining life to regulate functioning of reproductive organs. These are very effective but their irreversibility is very poor, so they are not good options for contraception.
