Introduction: Family planning programs in Islamic Republic of Iran are faced with limited resources. So evaluation of family planning programs, in order to determine how much we have reached our targets, is extremely important. The easiest way to evaluate the results of these activities is using the couple-year of protection method.
Methods: This descriptive study was conducted to determine the couple- year of protection (CYP) of two methods of contraception of condom and vasectomy. Two hundred condom users and 200 women whose husbands have undergone vasectomy were selected by simple random sampling from the therapeutic and health centers in Jahrom. The condom users and those resorting to vasectomy were asked about the mean coital frequency per month and the age of using permanent contraceptive method respectively, and then CYP was calculated.
Results: CYP was 0.011 for condom, 14 for vasectomy in this study. Mean live children number was 2.68±1.32 for vasectomy. CYP of vasectomy was more than Wishek coefficient.
Conclusion: Regarding the importance of age of using these methods in providing protection, this method must be done in younger age. Also, CYP of condom was more than Wishek coefficient (0.01).
