Description

FPCUREFF (V3A02) indicates whether the woman was told by anyone about potential side effects of her current contraceptive method when she first obtained it. The related variable FPCURDEAL indicates whether the woman was told how to deal with these side effects.

Users should be careful to distinguish this variable from FPCUREFFWKR (V3A03), which indicates whether the woman was told about side effects by a health or family planning worker.

Comparability

While the question wording for FPCUREFF (V3A02) is largely standard, IPUMS-DHS users should note universe differences across samples. For most samples, the universe included women who began to use a "modern" contraceptive method in the last five years. According to the standard DHS record manual, the following forms of contraception are considered modern methods:

  • Pill
  • IUD
  • Injections
  • Diaphragm/foam/jelly
  • Condom
  • Female Sterilization
  • Male Sterilization
  • Implants
  • Lactational amenorrhea
  • Female condom

For some surveys, the meaning of "modern" method varies, and as a result, the specific methods that were considered "modern" for this variable vary across samples. Most commonly, the lactational amenorrhea method (LAM), female condoms, and diaphragm/foam/jelly were not included in this grouping, so users of these methods were excluded, but as noted below, some samples diverged from this convention.
