ABSTRACT

and attitude of female youths toward family planning in college of education
Ikere Ekiti State. In Nigeria, most of the youths do not do family planning, as

school using simple random sampling technique. The instrument used for the
study was a 36 –items structured questionnaire. A test re-test method was
employed to ascertain the instrument using Pearson’s Product Moment
Correlation. A coefficient 0.95 was obtained at 0.05 level of significant.
Descriptive statistic involving frequency counts and percentages were used to
answer research questions .The generated hypotheses were tested using
Chi-Square (x2).All  the hypothesis were
tested at 0.05 level of significance.

CHAPTER
I
INTRODUCTION
 Background of the study
Family planning is a pillar of safe motherhood
and is now seen as a human right. Family planning is the planning of when to
have children and the use of birth control and other techniques to implement
such plans. Family planning is sometimes used as a synonym for the use of birth
control; however it often includes a wide variety of methods and practices that
is not birth control. It most usually applied to a female –male couple they
have or control the timing of pregnancy (spacing children.
World Health Organization (WHO) (1975) defined
family planning as a programme to regulate the number and spacing of children
in a family through the practise of contraception or other methods of birth
control. According to Odejide (2009) family planning as a concept includes
contraception which deals primarily with then prevention of unwanted pregnancy
and family health education which touches on responsible sexual behaviour and
proper motherhood and fatherhood upbringing. In a nut shell, family planning
simply means the ability to plan the family in such a way that the family can
have the number of children she desires and still enjoy marital life. The
Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria, (PPFN) (1999) defined family planning
as the spacing of birth for the health and welfare of mothers and children.
Contraception methods have had a considerable
positive impact on material and in fact health and population growth. It is
however unfortunate that unwanted pregnancies and unsafe termination of
pregnancy still occur in large number among the female youths in college of
education Ikere, Ekiti state. Through young people today marry late, but many
of them start sexual relationship before marriage in particular most of the
female youth start at their tender ages (Manzini, 2001). The involvement of
young people in unprotected sexual behaviour has increased their vulnerability
to HIV infection. The female youths of college of education Ikere, Ekiti state
really needs access to information about sexual and reproductive health and
contraceptive choice. They must be able to make their choice to prevent
unwanted pregnancies, HIV infection and Sexually Transmitted Infection (STIs),
based on informed knowledge of the health concerns and side effects of such
contraceptive.
Most of the factors influencing youths especially
the females in some of the tertiary institutions in their sexual behaviour and
attitudes toward contraceptive use is religion. Some studies have emphasised
the functionality of religion in influencing young people’s sexual behaviour
(Odimegwu, 2005; Ringheim & Woldehanna, 2009) with less consideration on
the likely effects of doctorial teachings on unmarried young people’s sexual
behaviour that might publicly comply with abstinence by not using
contraceptives but engage in risky sexual behaviour. In terms of attitudes a
high proportion (39%) considers that female have a more responsible attitude to
contraceptive than male perhaps a predictable response. this reflects growing
concerns about teenage pregnancies and the number of teenage having unprotected
sex through ignorance or fear of going to family doctor to obtain
contraceptive.
Traditionally it was not acceptable to get
pregnant in tertiary institution and also before marriage, but cultural norms
have shifted and having a teenage pregnancy is now not seen as immoral (Ehlers
& Ziyani 2006). They also proceeded that the attitude of health care
providers contribute to the non-use of contraceptives by female youths in
tertiary institutions, since they are denied access by being ridiculed and
despite having knowledge about contraceptives they end up becoming pregnant.
Bisik & Yako (2007) opined that in Africa
most especially in the tertiary institutions female youths die due to pregnancy
related conditions and unsafe abortion account for a great deal of youth
morbidity. They also reported that a large proportion of youths were exposed to
the risk of pregnancy in tertiary institutions, college of education Ikere is a
sub-set of tertiary institution in Nigeria. It was observed by the researcher
that teenage pregnancy is common among college of education, Ikere students.
These could be said to be due to lack of contraceptive knowledge.
It is necessary for human beings especially
female youths in  college of education
Ikere, Ekiti state to lay emphasis on caring for children i.e. the ability to
look after them properly rather than giving birth unexpectedly. Hence, thinking
about how they will cope with their studies in school, along with caring for
the child. Family planning does not state the number of children a family could
have but it emphasises on spacing of births and regulating reproduction for the
health of the mother.
This research work is based on knowledge and
attitude of female youths towards family planning in College of Education
Ikere, Ekiti state.
Statement of the problem

One of the primary objectives of family planning
among female youths in tertiary institutions is to enhance good health. The
researcher observed that in College of Education Ikere, there are many female
students who are involved in termination of unwanted and unplanned pregnancies
are related issues, which affect their health and academic status. The
researcher is of the opinion that these could be linked with th
