The main objective of this study is to assess factors affecting use of IUCD among FP clients.This is a facility based unmatched case control study. Cases were women who used IUCD as method of contraception and controls were women who used OCPs and injectables as methods of contraception during the study.Logistic regression model was used to see the net effects of predictor variables over the dependent one. Women who completed secondary education and above were found to be 8.78 times more likely to use IUCD than illiterate women (AOR=8.782, 95%CI: 1.721-44.822). The odds of IUCD use is 4.46 times higher among women who had a history of abortion than women who had no abortion (AOR=4.468, 95%CI: 1.655-12.057). Women who had children aged 1.5 months (45 days) were 6.32 more likely to use IUCD than those women whose last birth was 2 months and more ago at the time of the study(AOR=6.323, 95%CI: 1.472-27.151).
