Are we talking about total abstinence, or periodic abstinence (such as
the so-called "rhythm method"?)

There is no answer at this time.

Hi xemion,

I wasn't able to locate the percentage rate of couples practicing
total abstinence as a method of comtraception. However, during my
research, I found these sites which may be of interest to you:

Earth Policy Institute

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The Alan Guttmacher Institute.


Best regards,

You know what they call a married couple that uses the 'rythm method'?
