Figure 1: The trends in cost and number of female sterilization over the 35 years' period of review. The cost of female sterilization within the period has just been a token for the procedure. It ranged from being free at inception (zero Naira from 1985 to 2004, N500 from 2005 to 2011, N1,000 from 2012 to 2015, N2,000 in 2016–2019). The cost is heavily subsidized by the institution, being a training institution where regular and routine posting of residents takes place including the family planning clinic. The cost of contraceptive implants remained consistently higher than the female sterilization in the period under review
