Population Growth Rate (PGR) is the fractional rate at which the number of individuals in a population increases. It ordinarily refers to the change in population over a period of time period, often expressed as a percentage of the number of individuals in the population at the beginning of that period.
Zero Population Growth (ZPG) , is a condition of demographic balance where the number of people in a specified population neither grows nor declines, considered as the social aim.
Decline in Death Rate – the fall in death rates that is decline in mortality rate is one fundamental causes of overpopulation. The new inventions in medicine have brought treatments for most of the dreadful diseases thus resulted in the increase in the life expectancy of individuals.
Rise in the Birth Rate – medicines of today can boost the reproductive rate in human beings. There are medicines and treatments which can help in conception.
Migration – if the inhabitants of the various countries migrate to a particular part of the world and settle over that area, that place is bound to suffer from the ill effects of overpopulation. Crowding of immigrants in certain parts of the world, results in an imbalance in the density of population.
Lack of Education – illiteracy is another important cause of overpopulation. Those lacking education fail to understand the need to prevent excessive growth of population. Lack of family planning is commonly seen in the illiterate lot of the world.
The accelerated growth of the human populations has propitiated the destruction of natural habitats of many species. People are invading the habitats of those species, replacing them to inhospitable places and condemning the native species to the extinction.
Too dense human communities produce tons of solid wastes (organic and inorganic) daily, consume large quantities of energy and emit more pollutants to the environment.
Water necessities will increase to 20% by 2005. Approximately, one half of wetlands around the world have been lost since 1990.
The ozone layer has been gradually ruined by the effects of the CFC’s. The concentration of CFCs has been increased as the human population has grown, and the thickness of the Ozone layer has been lesser to the extent that a hole in the layer has been formed.

INTRAUTERINE METHOD or INTRAUTERINE DEVICES (IUD)
These are contraceptive devices which are placed inside the uterus. They are usually shaped like a "T" — the arms of the T hold the device in place.
In the US, all devices which are placed in the uterus to prevent pregnancy are referred to as intra-uterine devices (IUDs) or intra-uterine contraceptive devices (IUCDs).
In the UK, only copper-containing devices are called IUDs (or IUCDs), and hormonal intrauterine contraceptives are referred to with the term Intra-Uterine System (IUS). This may be because there are ten types of copper IUDs available in the UK, compared to only one in the US.
There are two main types of intrauterine contraceptives: those that contain copper (which has a spermicidal effect), and those that release a progestogen (in the US the term progestin is used).
literally "interrupted sex", also known as the withdrawal method, is the practice of ending sexual intercourse ("pulling out") before ejaculation.
The problem is that there are often sperm present in the little dribble of pre-come that escapes from most men when they're excited prior to ejaculation. So even if men get good at withdrawing just before they ejaculate, it doesn't necessarily mean that sperm have not started to swim up the vagina.
These include the combined oral CONTRACEPTIVE PILL ("The Pill"), the PATCH, and the CONTRACEPTIVE VAGINAL RING ("NuvaRing").
Other methods contain only a PROGESTIN (a synthetic progestogen). These include the PROGESTERONE ONLY PILL (the POP or 'minipill'), the INJECTABLES DEPO PROVERA (a depot formulation of medroxyprogesterone acetate given as an intramuscular injection every three months) and NORISTERAT (Norethindrone acetate given as an intramuscular injection every 8 weeks), and CONTRACEPTIVE IMPLANTS.
Ormeloxifene (Centchroman) is a selective oestrogen receptor modulator, or SERM. It causes ovulation to occur asynchronously with the formation of the uterine lining, preventing implantation of a zygote. It has been widely available as a birth control method in India since the early 1990s, marketed under the trade name Saheli. Centchroman is legally available only in India.
ABORTION can be done with surgical methods, usually suction-aspiration abortion (in the first trimester) or dilation and evacuation (in the second trimester). Medical abortion uses drugs to end a pregnancy and is approved for pregnancies where the length of gestation has not exceeded 8 weeks.
Some herbs are believed to cause abortion (abortifacients). The efficacy of these plants as such has never been studied in humans. However the use of herbs to induce abortion is not recommended due to the risk of serious side effects.
is a surgical procedure in which the vasa deferentia of a man are cut for the purpose of sterilization.
There are some variations on the procedure such as no-scalpel (keyhole) vasectomies, in which a sharp hemostat, rather than a scalpel, is used to puncture the scrotum .
A "normal" vasectomy typically seals both ends of the vas deferens with stitches, heat, metal clamps or a combination, after cutting.
The open-ended vasectomy obstructs only the top end of the vas deferens. With this method sperm leaks out from the lower severed end of the vas deferens and into the scrotum, thus hopefully avoiding a build-up of pressure in the epididymis.
