Background: Engaging men in sexual and reproductive health, particularly family planning, can improve health outcomes for men, women, and children. However, the in­volvement of men in family planning in Indonesia remains low. The purpose of this study was to determine factors asso­ciated with contraceptive use among men in family planning village, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, using Theory of Planned Behavior.

Subjects and Method: A case control study was conducted in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. A sam­ple of 200 men aged 15 to 49 years was selected by fixed disease sampling. The dependent va­ri­able was male surgical contraceptive method use. The independent vari­ables were age, know­led­g­e, education, intention, attitude, perceived behavior control, sub­­jective norm, social culture, ac­cess to health service, service quality. The data were collected by questionnaire and analyzed by a multiple logistic regression.

Results: Male involvement in surgical contraceptive method was positively associated with age (b= 1.52; 95% CI= 0.49 to 2.55; p= 0.004), knowledge (b= 2.17; 95% CI= 0.98 to 3.36; p<0.001), education (b= 1.73; 95% CI= 0.45 to 3.02; p= 0.008), intention (b= 1.32; 95% CI= 0.26 to 2.38; p= 0.14), attitude (b= 1.86; 95% CI= 0.69 to 3.04; p= 0.002), subjective norm (b= 2.34; 95% CI= 1.25 to 3.42; p<0.001), perceived behavior control (b= 1.15; 95% CI= 0.01 to 2.29; p= 0.049), culture (b= 1.93; 95% CI= 0.69 to 3.18; p= 0.002), access of health service (b= 1.13; 95% CI= 0.02 to 2.24; p= 0.046), and quality of health service (b= 1.40; 95% CI= 0.33 to 2.48; p= 0.010).
