Abstract

Introduction: The first step for promoting the health status of low-dose OCP
users about pregnancy prevention and related subjects, is determining their
educational needs. Unfortunately, figures dedicated that the rate of unwanted
pregnancy is high in Bandar Abbas. For the illiterate participants, we used oral
questions. Because most of these women use low-dose OCP for family planning,
we have surveyed their educational needs.
Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study we have surveyed the educational
needs of 1000 women who used low-dose OCP, by means of a questionnaire. Then
all data were analysed by SPSS software and variance analysis.
Results: 89% of objects and 92% of their husbands were literate. Statistical test
have proven a significant correlation between objects’literacy level and decreased
educational needs, but some educational needs in different domains of
knowledge, attitude and application were observed.
Conclusion: High level of literacy is a powerful factor in health promotion. In
this study, in spite of high literacy in the population, there were some educational
needs, which is probably related to the cultural believes or lack of suitable health
issues education to this population.
