Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of risky sexual practice, unintended pregnancy, contraceptive utilization, and its determinants among women of reproductive age in Oromia, Ethiopia. Methods: Health facility-based cross-sectional study design was conducted among women living with HIV attending ART clinics in the special zone of, Oromia Regional state, by simple random sampling was used to select 654 respondents. Both bivariate and multivariable logistic regressions analysis was used to identify at Adjusted Odds Ratio (AOR) with 95% CI in the final model. Result: The current family planning utilization among women of reproductive age living with HIV in Oromia Region was 548 (83.8%). The completed response rate of this study was 97.6% (654/670). There were 654 respondents whose ages ranged between 18 and 49 years. The prevalence of dual contraceptive utilization was 425 (73.8%), of which 343 (80.7%) and 306 (72%) were sustained users of dual contraception methods, respectively. Open discussion on family planning with healthcare providers and having received family planning counseling about the efficacy of each method were assumed to be contributing factors. Conclusion: The current family planning utilization among women of reproductive age was higher than the national contraceptive prevalence rate. This proportion is parallel to the proportion of service providers reporting to provide both HIV- and family planning-related services as being largely dependent on training on integrated family planning and HIV services.
