The role of the Standard Days Method in modern family planning services in developing countries
The mere availability of family planning (FP) services is not sufficient to improve reproductive health; services must also be of adequate quality. The introduction of new contraceptive methods is a means of improving quality of care. The Standard Days Method (SDM) is a new fertility-awareness-based contraceptive method that has been successfully added to reproductive health care services around the world. SDM introduction broadens the range of FP methods available to couples in developing countries. SDM counseling presents an opportunity for FP providers to discuss important interpersonal and reproductive health issues with potential users.
