I would like to talk with you about another subject - family planning - and your reproductive health.
Are you pregnant now?
The module should be administered to all women aged 15-49 years (including women age 15 and age 49). These questions and the ones in the HIV/AIDS module deal with private behaviour and attitudes. These questions are designed to collect the basic information needed to estimate contraceptive prevalence rates and types of methods used, as well as to measure the need for family planning by identifying women who want no more children or want to postpone their next birth. If present, male members of field teams (such as supervisors, editors and drivers) should be asked to leave the interview area. Even in cases where women are being interviewed alone, they will be reluctant to answer these questions if they sense that you are part of a team that includes males and that her responses may be shared with the males in the team. This question is important because later questions in this module will not need to be asked of pregnant women. A woman who is pregnant does not need to use contraception! Circle the code corresponding to the response given. If she is pregnant, circle '1' and go to the next module. If the woman is unsure or does not know for certain if she is pregnant, circle '8' for 'Unsure or DK'. In both cases, skip to CP2.
