Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the contraceptive knowledge and practice among married immi-grant women. Methods: A cross-sectional survey design with a conbenient sampling was used. 170 married immi-grant women were recruited in Daejeon city and Chungcheong area. A structured questionnaire was self-ad-ministered from November 1, 2011 to January 13,2012. Results: 48.2% of subjects have used contraceptive practice. The widely used contraception methods were IUD, condom, oral pill and withdrawal. 73.2% of subjects got in-formation about contraception from family and friends, and 18.3% of subjects had no source of information. The sub-jects` employment state (p=.006), duration of marriage (p=0.21), family type (p=.046) have a significant influence on their contraceptive practice. The subject` mean score of contraceptive knowledge was very low (5.72 points out of 15 points). There were significant differences in subjects` contraceptive knowledge depending on their education level (p=.002), employment state (p<.001), country of origin (p=.001), and family type (p=.003). Conclusion: To improve contraceptive knowledge and practice for married immigrant women, it is necessary to develop a proper contraceptive education program to enhance contraceptive knowledge and practice.
