India’s population, which crossed 1.21 billion in 2011, is projected to reach 1.53 billion by 2050, making it the most populous country in the world. Women of reproductive age group (15-45 years) make up approximately 248 million. The current strategy in Family Planning emphasizes importance on providing high quality contraceptive services among eligible clients on a voluntary basis. The main aim of the program is promoting adequate spacing of births and thereby promoting the health and wellbeing of the mother and child. India was the first country to launch a family planning programme in 1952. The gap between attitude towards the small family norm and knowledge and practice of family planning among Indian couple is intriguing. So this led the investigator for selecting this study on structrured teaching programme regarding Intra Uterine Devices, It was a Quasi-experimental one group pre-test and post-test study conducted in Kadusonnappanahalli community, Bengaluru. The sample size was 60, selected through convenient sampling technique. Among the 60 women 42(70%) of married women were having inadequate level of knowledge, 18(30%) of married women were having moderate knowledge regarding intra uterine devices before administering structured teaching programme. In post test, 52(86.7%) had adequate knowledge, 8(13.3%) had moderate knowledge and none of them had inadequate knowledge regarding intra uterine devices after the administration of the structured teaching programme.
