Abstract: Introduction: India has the second largest population in the world. The higher fertility in India is attributed to universality of marriage, low level of literacy, limited use of contraceptives and traditional way of life. Sterilization can be empowering decision for the right person at right time in their life. There are good alternatives such as IUD, which provide better prevention of pregnancy without risks associated with surgery. People have misconceptions regarding the sterilization & its effect. In the time of population explosion there is a great need to adopt sterilization as family planning method to control the population.
