The aim of this study was to identify the factors explaining intention to seek medical care promptly if STD symptoms were suspected.
A random sample of 1617 undergraduate students completed a questionnaire assessing intention, attitude, perceived norm among friends, perceived behavioral control, and risk of disease, along with different socio-demographic variables.
The regression of intention on all variables yielded an adjusted R2 of 0.32 (P<0.0001).
The factors explaining this variance were the perceived advantages, easiness, and social norm among friends regarding seeking medical care promptly, age, and gender.
