Methods: This study was conducted with a cross-sectional design with a case-control approach, sampling technique used was proportional random sampling. Data collection was carried out on 38 primigravida pregnant women who visited the public health center with a history of participating in IEC catin program as observation group and 38 respondents from primigravida mothers with a history of not participating in KIE catin program as control group. Then data were analyzed by using chi-square. Results: Results showed that knowledge of sexual and reproductive health in two groups did not have a difference (p = 1,000), as did catin's attitudes towards sexual and reproductive health in two groups (p = 0.487). IEC and sexual health are less effective in increasing knowledge and attitudes. Discussion: The need for more specific program evaluation to increase outcomes by program objectives.
