Unmet need for family planning has been defined the as the percentage of sexually active fecund women who are not expecting to have a child at least for next two years or ambivalent on their child bearing but are not using any contraceptive method (United Nations 2009) [14]. Further, women who are having unmet need and those using natural and traditional methods at the same time are considered as having unmet need for modern methods. [4]. Unmet need for family planning indicates the discrepancy between the intention and the use of contraceptive in the cohabiting reproductive aged women.
