alarm as they are unable to control their sexual desire. Today, sexual
transmitted diseases are virtually in every home. Unwanted pregnancies and
illegitimate children have flooded several homes. Given the fact that the
target population here is primarily college undergraduates are relevant
questions is whether providing contraceptive to undergraduates is socially
Sex is like electricity which has a tremendous force for good but
when electricity runs wild, it is a terrible power for evil. Millions of good
undergraduates have a wrong way use of sex, their lives twisted as if lightened

sexual mistake have almost killed their happiness inside. The negative result
of this uncontrollable force needs to be checked by the use of contraceptive.

these variables with the most potential for predicting contraceptives
behaviors, which will assist in the development and implementation of effective
prevention and intervention programme especially issues concerning sexually
transmitted disease i.e. HIV/AIDS. It does not focus on safer sex practice,
rather it is dedicated primarily to reviewing the literature concerning
correlates of unwanted pregnancies among undergraduates usually pills and
condom use. This will also go along way to make profound contributions to
medical issues like family planning, rate of contraception of sexually
transmitted disease and effectiveness of contraceptive. More so the findings
discussed here may be useful to sexuality experts involved in the development
and promotions of safer sex programme. It is envisaged that this research will constitute
a meaningful contribution to the ongoing debate on strategies for educating
undergraduate on sexuality and contraception and also it will be of major help
to the government health care centers, voluntary organizations in effort to
reduce sexually transmitted disease. It also seeks to help identify
undergraduates who either do not use or misuse contraception means, thereby
