An Awareness Quiz On World Contraception Day! Trivia Questions - Quiz

World Contraception Day takes place on the 26th of September every year. It is launched to improve awareness of contraception and to enable young couples to make choices on reproductive/sexual health. This quiz will test your knowledge on what you know about World Contraception Day.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is not a modern and effective contraceptive method?

    • A.

      Sterilization

    • B.

      Withdrawal

    • C.

      Condom

    • D.

      Intra-uterine device

    Correct Answer
    B. Withdrawal
    Explanation
    Withdrawal is not considered a modern and effective contraceptive method because it relies on the man's ability to withdraw his penis before ejaculation, which is a highly unreliable method of contraception. It is often referred to as the "pull-out" method and has a high failure rate due to the possibility of pre-ejaculate containing sperm. Therefore, withdrawal is not recommended as a reliable form of contraception compared to other methods such as sterilization, condoms, and intra-uterine devices.

    What is abstinence?

    • A.

      Having sex daily

    • B.

      Not having sex

    • C.

      Having sex once a year

    • D.

      Having sex once a month

    Correct Answer
    B. Not having sex
    Explanation
    Abstinence refers to the practice of refraining from engaging in sexual activity. It involves consciously choosing not to have sex, regardless of the frequency or circumstances. This decision can be made for various reasons, such as personal values, religious beliefs, or to prevent unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted infections. Abstinence is an effective method of birth control and is often promoted as part of comprehensive sex education programs.

    Which of the following contraception requires surgery?

    • A.

      Vasectomy

    • B.

      Condoms 

    • C.

      Withdrawal 

    • D.

      Latex 

    Correct Answer
    A. Vasectomy
    Explanation
    Vasectomy is the correct answer because it is a surgical procedure that involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the urethra. This procedure is a permanent form of contraception for men and is considered a highly effective method of preventing pregnancy. Condoms, withdrawal, and latex are not surgical methods of contraception. Condoms are barrier methods, withdrawal relies on pulling out before ejaculation, and latex is a material used in some types of condoms.

    What is the most significant advantage of contraception with the hormonal method?

    • A.

      STI protection

    • B.

      STI and HIV protection 

    • C.

      All 100% effective

    • D.

      All 99% effective

    Correct Answer
    B. STI and HIV protection 
    Explanation
    The most significant advantage of contraception with the hormonal method is STI and HIV protection. This method not only prevents unwanted pregnancies but also provides a barrier against sexually transmitted infections and HIV. This is particularly important for individuals who are sexually active and want to protect themselves and their partners from the risk of contracting these infections.

    Which of the following are chemical methods of contraception?

    • A.

      Condoms

    • B.

      Spermicides

    • C.

      Vasectomy

    • D.

      Female condoms

    Correct Answer
    B. Spermicides
    Explanation
    Spermicides are chemical substances that are used to kill or immobilize sperm, preventing them from fertilizing an egg. They are considered a chemical method of contraception because they rely on the use of chemicals to prevent pregnancy. Condoms and female condoms, on the other hand, are barrier methods of contraception, as they physically block sperm from entering the uterus. Vasectomy is a surgical procedure that involves cutting or blocking the vas deferens, which is a method of permanent contraception.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following are Sexually Transmitted Infections without a cure? 

    • A.

      Chlamydia and HPV

    • B.

      Chlamydia and Gonorrhea

    • C.

      HPV and Herpes

    • D.

      Herpes and Gonorrhea

    Correct Answer
    C. HPV and Herpes
    Explanation
    HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and Herpes are sexually transmitted infections without a cure. Both viruses can be managed and their symptoms can be treated, but there is no known cure to completely eliminate the virus from the body. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, on the other hand, can be cured with the appropriate antibiotics.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following are Barrier methods?

    • A.

      Vasectomy 

    • B.

      Douching

    • C.

      Withdrawal 

    • D.

      Latex 

    Correct Answer
    D. Latex 
    Explanation
    Latex is a barrier method because it creates a physical barrier between the sperm and the cervix, preventing pregnancy. It is commonly used in the form of condoms, which are placed over the penis to collect semen and prevent it from entering the vagina. Other barrier methods include diaphragms, cervical caps, and spermicides. Vasectomy is a permanent method of birth control for men, while douching and withdrawal are not considered barrier methods as they do not provide a physical barrier to prevent pregnancy.

  • 8. 

    What is the best lubricant to use with latex condoms?

    • A.

      Oil-based

    • B.

      Gel

    • C.

      Water-based

    • D.

      Vaseline

    Correct Answer
    C. Water-based
    Explanation
    Water-based lubricants are the best option to use with latex condoms because they are compatible with latex and do not cause it to weaken or break. Oil-based lubricants, such as Vaseline, can degrade latex and increase the risk of condom failure. Gel lubricants may or may not be water-based, so they may or may not be suitable for use with latex condoms. Therefore, water-based lubricants are the safest and most effective choice for maintaining the integrity of latex condoms during sexual activity.

    Which of the following is the least effective methods of contraception?

    • A.

      Withdrawal

    • B.

      Latex 

    • C.

      Condoms 

    • D.

      Vasectomy 

    Correct Answer
    A. Withdrawal
    Explanation
    Withdrawal is considered the least effective method of contraception because it relies on the man pulling out before ejaculation to prevent pregnancy. However, this method is not reliable as it is difficult to control ejaculation timing and pre-ejaculate fluid may still contain sperm. It also does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). In comparison, latex condoms and vasectomy are more effective methods of contraception as they provide a physical barrier to prevent sperm from reaching the egg.

  • 10. 

    Which of the following is a side effect of contraception?

    • A.

      Weight loss

    • B.

      Anxiety

    • C.

      Weight gain 

    • D.

      Hypertension

    Correct Answer
    C. Weight gain 
    Explanation
    Weight gain is a known side effect of contraception. Hormonal contraceptives, such as birth control pills, patches, and injections, can cause weight gain in some individuals. This is because these methods can alter hormone levels and metabolism, leading to increased appetite and water retention. It is important to note that not everyone experiences weight gain with contraception, and the extent of weight gain can vary among individuals. It is advisable to consult a healthcare provider for personalized information and guidance regarding the side effects of contraception.
