I am looking for any analysis of Knowledge of days when a woman is more likely to become pregnant. Are the result of this question included in DHS reports? Is it possible to get this analysis in stata compiler are one needs to download the data and do analysis? I want to see if lack of knowledge of days when one is likely to become pregnant is associated with unwanted pregnancy especially among adolescents.

regards
Patrick

Women are more likely to be fertile at the time of ovulation. Ovulation means when eggs are released from the ovaries.
This is the period of 12 to 14 days of your next period.
For example, if womens's menses cycle is of 28 days. She had her last period on 12th of that month. Then she can be ovulating from 1st of next month. In this way, women is more likely to become pregnant just before 12 to 14 days of her menses cycle.

Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

I opened the IR file and entered, "lookfor fertile", then "lookfor period", then "lookfor know". On the third try I got a list of variables that included "knowledge of the ovulatory cycle". The variable you are looking for is v217. More importantly, I have told you how to find it on your own.
