Abstract:
Introduction: Certain contraceptives, aimed to prevent pregnancy, can cause psycho-nervous problems in women. Generally, everybody has special psychosomatic characteristics related to culture, life experiences, feelings, beliefs, and personality. Therefore it seems that family planning methods should be selected with appropriate concern for women and their husband's personality and psychological characteristics. Objective: The purpose of this study was to define mental health in women using tubectomy and IUD for contraception. Materials and Methods: 412 women using either IUD and tubectomy, or no contraception were randomly selected. Then SCL-90-R test questionnaires were completed for all women. The mean age of participants was 32.4 years and 92% were housekeepers. Results: GSI ?108 showed that 47.35% of women with tubectomies had psychological disorders. Among this 47.35%, paranoid thoughts, anxiety, and physical complaints were common. The GSI mean score of women with tubectomies was more than those using IUD and those not using any contraception (P<0.05). Conclusion: A high percentage of women using contraception suffered psychological disorders. This was observed with tubectomies more than the other contraception methods with a significant difference (P<0.05).
