Suggested revision: Revise the definition of the fertile window (period when woman is more likely to
become pregnant) in question 240.

Rationale: Knowledge of the fertile window and pregnancy risk perceptions are critical to the correct

lead to misattribution of knowledge of the fertile window and may undermine
subsequent analysis or conclusions about family planning use associated with question

Specific change: We suggest revising response option 4 to "several days hallway between two
