Family planning is programming about future of reproductive reproduction. The main aim of this research was to compare the efficacy of family planning education by individual education in residential place and by health system education. In This quazi-experimental study, 120 married women who did not use any contraceptive for purpose of family planning, don’t have intend to be pregnant, were randomly selected from 4 health centers. The women were randomly divided to two case and control groups. In case group, the instructor consulted vulnerable women for using family planning, by referring to their home, but the control group did not receive any formal consultation by health center personal. They just receive written materials for self-education. Content of instruction and instructor in all samples were similar. Three to sex months after the latter education, their practice were recorded in a predesigned questionnaire and analyzed. Results showed that in case group %50 and %46.6 of samples, 3 months and 6 months after education used contraceptive methods. While in control group, %5 and %15 of samples 3 months and 6 months after the program used contraceptive methods, and these differences were significant (P<0.001). It seems that formal individual education is more effective in family planning.
