Abstract:

Modern contraception implemented in the health posts of the Peruvian highlands has not been readily accepted. The goal of this paper is to report on the contraceptive practices of the Quechua-speaking Indians living in a small rural community near Cuzco, Peru. The attitudes of husbands and wives toward contraception and the control of family size are analyzed in relation to their internalized values about fertility and their cultural role. Women's subordinate position in the society and vis-à-vis their husbands is reinforced by cultural taboos concerning menstruation. Men's involvement in contraception and their preference for periodic abstinence suggests both that they fear menstrual blood, and that they do not wish to lose control over their wives' sexual lives. Couples' behavior about the control of family size reveals that within the context of the society, gender identity perpetuates men's dominant role and women's subordination. Suggestions for improving the delivery of family planning services emphasize educational workshops given separately to husbands and wives. Women's economic coalition through the marketing of crafts would enhance their social position and would increase their participation in reproductive decisions.
