The Philippines has a contraceptive prevalence rate of 55%, based on the 2013 Philippines National Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS). Most contraceptive users rely on modern methods, but over the past 10 years traditional method use has continued to comprise about a third of all contraceptive users in the country. This study examines recent levels, patterns, and determinants of traditional contraceptive method use, based on pooled data from the 2003, 2008, and 2013 Philippines DHS surveys.
