Banduras’ theory stated that the cognitive processes including making a decision, having beliefs, or appreciating self-abilities were a consideration in understanding individuals' capabilities to deal with certain tasks. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between self-efficacy and the selection of contraception methods. This research applied the colerational design with a crosssectional approach. Independent variable was the level of Self-efficacy and the dependent variable was the choice of contraception methods.
