The effect of knowledge and attitude of family planning acceptances on iud contraception selection during the COVID-19 pandemic

Abstract

Introduction: Although several studies on the influence of knowledge and education of family planning (KB) acceptors on the selection of intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUDs) have been carried out previously, research on knowledge and attitudes of family planning acceptors towards the selection of IUDs during the COVID-19 pandemic is still limited. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of knowledge and attitudes of family planning acceptors on the selection of an intrauterine device (IUD) during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Methods: The data used in this study were obtained from filling out questionnaires involving 162 respondents. This study was analyzed descriptively analytically with the parameters of knowledge and attitudes towards the selection of intrauterine devices (IUD) using a bivariate table.

Results: This study showed that 38.4% had sufficient knowledge, only 1.2% chose to use the IUD with a p-value of 0.348 > 0.05 and of the 66% who had a positive attitude only 2.5% chose to use the IUD with a p-value 0.146 > 0.05.

Conclusion: Although family planning acceptors have sufficient knowledge and a positive attitude, it does not affect the selection of the IUD as an effective long-term contraceptive, so the use of other contraceptives is still recommended as an effort to control fertility according to the needs of the acceptor during the Covid pandemic.
