The research instrument was IUD questionnaire that was used to collect data for the research. The validity of the instrument was 0.77 while reliability was 0.67. Both coefficients were significant at 0.05 level. Two null hypotheses were raised for the study. One was rejected and the other accepted. It was concluded that since the method is effective and easily reversible, it could be used by all the women that are currently not using. It was therefore, recommended that a backup method be used by those who have other sexual partners so as to avoid STD.
