Overall, the EDHS results indicate that 60% of currently married women in Egypt are using contraception. The IUD, pill, and injectables are the most widely used methods: 36% of currently married women interviewed for the EDHS use the IUD, 12% rely on the pill, and 7% utilise injectables. Relatively small proportions of women were using other modern methods; e.g., 1% of women use the male condom. Three percent of women reported the use of traditional methods.
