Abstract

Background: Premarital educational programs are considered important in promoting the quality of married life.

Material and Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was performed on 205 men at the stage of marriage. The data-gathering tool was a questionnaire about men attitudes to 6 fields of reproductive health.

Results: Our results showed that the calculated mean of the attitude increased from 68.03± 8.9 before participation to 71.6± 9.4 after finishing the program (p>0.05).

Conclusion: We conclude that the attitude of men should be improved in the field of reproductive health after such programs. [ZJRMS, 2012 14(1): 94-97 ]
