The Purpose of this study is to predict Jordanian women’s intention to use oral contraceptives by applying the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). A correlational design was used to predict how well the TPB constructs of Attitude, Social Norms, and Perceived Behavioral Control predicted Jordanian women’s intention of using oral contraceptives. The Intention to Use Oral Contraceptive Tool (IUOCT), an instrument developed and tested by the principal investigator, was used to collect data from 83 Jordanian women. The questionnaire was administered in written or interview form. The findings of this study demonstrate that the General Attitude and Positive Beliefs about oral contraceptive use are predictors of intention to use oral contraceptives. However, they provide limited support to Expectation of Others and Perceived Behavioral Control constructs of the TPB. It was concluded that the TPB can be an effective model for understanding women’s contraceptive behavior. AN: MN030272
