Health consequences of sterilizations

No wp-2017-125, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: One-third of married women are sterilized in India. This is largely due to family planning programs that put a strong emphasis on 'permanent' contraceptive methods rather than temporary ones. However, little is known about potential adverse effects on women's wellbeing. We analyse the consequences of sterilization on maternal health. To do so, we take advantage of datasets that record information on various symptoms in the reproductive sphere or anthropometric and biological measurements.
