Certain limitations of the study need to be mentioned here. As DSH attempt and domestic violence are punishable offences and carry strong social stigma, detailed information collection about these acts were difficult. All assessments were based on self-report, and were likely to underestimate the true prevalence of domestic violence. Moreover, interference of the family members (probably because of the legal apprehension) was a big problem during the interview in some of the cases. Unwilling participation and incomplete interview were more with the female subjects. Therefore the total sample size of this study was small; hence the findings should not be generalized. The conclusions made should be interpreted as a pilot finding from a group of DSH attempters at the primary care level.
Thus it can be concluded from the present study that younger age (less than 30 years), female sex, low educational level, married status, intra-familial conflicts (with spouse or parents) and domestic violence are the significant risk factors associated with self-harm behavior. Pesticide poisoning was the most common method of DSH and thus reflecting a positive association between impulsive suicidal behavior and easy availability of pesticides in the region. Public education against domestic violence and timely psychosocial management of the vulnerable cases through a protracted community based mental health program may help to reduce the frequency of DSH and domestic violence.
Family planning is the planning of when to have children, and the use of birth control and other techniques to implement such plans. Other techniques commonly used include sexuality education, prevention and management of sexually transmitted infections, pre-conception counseling and management, and infertility management.
Family planning is sometimes used in the wrong way also as a synonym for the use of birth control, though it often includes more. It is most usually applied to a female–male couple who wish to limit the number of children they have and/or to control the timing of pregnancy (also known as spacing children). Family planning may encompass sterilization, as well as abortion.
