The Central Government of India has initiated a comprehensive plan to provide intra-uterine contraceptive device (IUCD) insertion services at the health sub-centres. The IUCD insertion facilities will be provided at the sub-centres on fixed days and free of cost.According to the government that the decision will help adolescent mothers, who are married young and bear children at an early age. They lack awareness and access to contraception and are at the highest risk of maternal mortality and morbidity. But the strategy of Government of India on family planning has entirely neglected the quality of care and the side effects of IUCD insertion on a woman.
