Abstract: 

The aim of this study was to assess the role of contraception and abortion in fertility regulation amongst Southwestern Nigerian women. It concludes that due to the high dependency on abortion especially among the young unmarried and high level educational status, there is a need for better fertility regulation in Ibadan and the government needs to make the methods widely available with adequate rural coverage.
