Most survey respondents were clueless about how different contraceptives work. For instance, when asked about an intrauterine device or IUD, over 30% of the respondents were under the impression that it is a permanent solution. As per experts, an IUD stays effective only for up to 12 years.

Around 83% of the Indians included in the survey were aware that a condom can be used only once, but most of them had never heard about injectable contraceptives.

Injectable contraceptives are said to decrease the risk of endometrial cancer, and reduce menstrual cramps and pain.
