While Speaking at Murangāa, she said that most of the women are avoiding to seek proper guidance from the doctors on family planning but instead they prefer to buy contraceptives from the chemists.
She therefore warned the women against the severe side effects the drugs might cause on their bodies.
āThe pills that women buy over the counter might have adverse health effects on them and I would urge them stop doing so,ā she continued, "There are parameters that the medics look into before they decide on what method to recommend for each woman".
She added that less than 50 percent of women go to hospital to seek guidelines for these services following high stigmatization on family planning methods.

She therefore urged parents who have daughters to take them to public hospitalsto be administered on HPV vaccine as this will help in reducing the risk of cervical cancer.
