SITUATION & PROBLEM OF COUPLES WHO WISH CHILDREN [CWWC]
There are 14 % of reproductive-age women; 5 million couples in the United States of America are childless or infertile. Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 12 months of unprotected sexual intercourse.[Harrisons. Manual of Medicine, 2005, p 846].
A study in South-eastern Bangladesh, examined the extent to which couples preference for male babies could be preventing a further decline in fertility through an impact on contraceptive use that determines fertility rates. Married couples-over 7500 “just married” couples, in fact were also the subject of a prospective study carried out in Shanghai, China. Results published in 2000 showed that despite a high rate of contraceptive use [about 80 % of married couples], half of the couples with one child had experienced one or more unintended pregnancies following the birth of their first child . It may be because of sex preference male or female babies birth and contraceptive failure. [WHO G eneva.2002, p 11].
In patriarchal culture societies there are the tendencies of couples preference for male babies; and in matriarchal culture societies the tendencies of couples preferences for female babies.
