Abstract— One of the most important and indirect cause of maternal deaths is multiparity of women and that too from unwanted conception. Female sterilization is one of the adopted contraceptive methods to limit the number of children. So this study was done to find out the profile of females adopting sterilization. A record base analysis was done on records of women who underwent sterilization in Mahila Chikitsalay Jaipur in year 2014 were analysed. Women who underwent sterilization were studied with respect to parity and educational status. Out of 15911 total deliveries were conducted in year 2014, 1002 women got sterilized i.e. 6.30% post partum sterilizations were done. Out of these women who went for sterilization, 10.58% got sterilized in puerperal period after normal delivery, 59.98% were sterilized with LSCS and 16.87% women went for sterilization with MTP. After hysterotomy and ectoic pregnancy women went for sterilization significantly more than normal delivery. Maximum sterilizations were done after 2nd para and more than 4th para. Education and preference of male child was also found to be associated with acceptance of sterilization i.e. as the education increases the acceptance for sterilization also increases.
