Background and Aim: Accelerated population growth around the world is a critical barrier on the way of social, economical, and cultural development of countries. Regarding the importance of birth control programs for the Ministry of Health and Medical Education and the fact that employed women form a main
stratum of the community with their own peculiar beliefs, the study of their fertility (productivity) pattern (based on Intent Behavior Model) seems quite necessary.
Materials and Methods: In a descriptive analytical study, all lay female employees working in the Birjand University of Medical sciences, Birjand University, and Birjand Azad University (135 women) were surveyed. Data collecting tool in the present study was a structural questionnaire on variables of intentbehavior
model such as attitude, abstract norms, intent, behavior, etc. To analyze the data we used chisquare, independent test, Pearson correlation coefficient, logistic regression. P≤0.05 was considered as the significant level.
Results: There was a significant difference between women’s awareness score and their level of education (P<0.007). Also, there was a significant correlation between the women’s awareness and their number and age of children (P<0.007). Logistic regression result showed that number of children, level of education and age, were respectively considered by the women using contraceptive methods.
Conclusion: Family planning educations focusing on variables of intent- behavior models, face to face methods, group trainings- group discussion, and providing health pamphlets play an effective role in women’s and families’ fertility behavior.
