This study assessed the effectiveness of a family planning intervention with and without husband's participation in reducing pregnancy and abortion rates in Shanghai, China.
In this 3-arm randomized trial among 1800 nonsterilized married women, educational interventions targeting both spouses and targeting the wife only were compared with usual family planning care.
Among women not using intrauterine devices (IUDs), the intervention with husband's participation had an effect in reducing pregnancy rates (adjusted odds ratio [OR]=0.36,95% confidence interval [CI]=0.12,1.1) and abortion rates (adjusted OR=0.29, CI=0.09,0.94) compared with control subjects, and a significant effect in reducing pregnancy rates (adjusted OR=0.29, CI=0.10,0.85) and abortion rates (adjusted OR=0.24, CI=0.07,0.77) compared with wife-only subjects.
Family planning interventions involving husbands may reduce pregnancy and abortion rates among non-IUD users.
