The Relationship in Mothers Between Knowledge Level and Compliance in the Use of Birth Control Pills
The Indonesian Government has used family planning in an effort to suppress the rate of population growth in Indonesia which is considered very fast. A rapid rate of population growth can increase the burden of national development and reduce the quality of family life. Therefore, the Government has attempted to reduce the total fertility rate in Indonesia. The impact of non-compliance in taking birth control pills can cause the hormones contained in the pill to not work optimally, and therefore pregnancy may not be prevented. Non-adherence often occurs in long-term drug consumption, including birth control pills. Compliance in taking birth control pills is a behavior related to a person’s level of knowledge about how to correctly use them. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between the level of knowledge and adherence to the use of birth control pills in women of childbearing age in Beru Village, Blitar Regency. Descriptive methods were used with a cross-sectional design. Data were collected using a knowledge questionnaire and a compliance questionnaire filled out by 100 respondents who were reproductive age women in Beru Village, Blitar Regency between June-July 2021. The findings showed that there was a relationship between the level of knowledge of women of childbearing age and the level of adherence to using birth control pills appropriately (p < 0.05).
