The study found that the average score of attitude towards the contraceptive implant usage in the promoted attitude group was significantly higher than in the normal care group [35.90±2.10, 20.26±1.79 (p<0.001)]; and the average score of intention to contraceptive implant usage in the promoted attitude group was significantly higher than in the normal care group [19.06±0.63, 10.13±0.86 (p<0.001)]. The rate of contraceptive implant in the promoted attitude group was significantly higher than the normal care group [23 people (93.3%), 6 people (20.0%); (p<0.001)].
