Abstract:
Purpose: To determine OCP users' awareness of contraceptives, regarding how to take them, as well as their advantages and disadvantages, in clinical centers in the city of Sanadaj. In particular, this study aims to: 1) Determine the individual characteristics of the test subjects; 2) Determine the level of knowledge among OCP users about how to use contraceptives, and their complications and advantages; and 3) Determine the relationship between the awareness of OCP users and individual characteristics. Background: Most people know that the fewer the children, the better the life. However we continue to see an excessive increase in the population, mostly due to the lack of awareness of methods of preventing pregnancies followed by unwanted pregnancy, which causes concern. Often mothers resort to actions that are dangerous to their health. Design: This is a descriptive/analytical project including 4 clinical centers in the city. The test subjects were all women, OCP users and patients at the clinics. There were 100 samples and data was obtained using a questionnaire containing two parts. The first listed 8 individual characteristics, and the second asked 22 questions about level of knowledge. The questionnaire was completed during interviews, on an easy objective-based method, then statistically analyzed. Results: Findings were set in 10 tables and showed that most OCP users were 20- 30 years of age, 48% were housewives, 52% were illiterate, 47% were married for 1-5 years, and had used OCP for less than a year. 48% responded that the reason they used them was because it was easy and without risk. 53% were given instructions by clinic personnel. Regarding the second aim of determining awareness, 46% had little knowledge and 18% had good information. Concerning the first and third aims, there was a significant relation with P<0/05. Significance: The results showed that 46% of test subjects had little information about proper use of OCP. Vahedian writes in his/her research regarding pregnancy behaviour in married women of 15- 49 in Sabzewar City that the importance is the level of practical effects of using contraceptive methods, and that the problem is the improper use of these methods. Thus, through giving adequate instruction and advice, effective steps can be taken towards the improvement of women's health.
