Abstract:

In recent years, using birth control methods has increased as a way to decrease population growth. However its effect on sexual relations has attracted the attention of many researchers.

The study sample included all women aged 18-45 referring to health centers 1 and 8 placed in the west of Ahvaz city in Iran in 2014. Among all people referring to health centers, 135 married women were randomly selected and data using a researcher-made questionnaire in a self-report way were gathered. To calculate its validity and reliability, content validity and Cronbach alpha coefficient were respectively used.
