Results
The level of reproductive health promoting behavior of female college students was 3.3±0.3 points on average. Reproductive health promoting behavior had a significant variance depending on age (F=4.70, p=0.045). Reproductive health promoting behavior had positive correlations with sex knowledge (r=0.24, p=0.040), intention to visit an obstetrics-gynecology (r=0.18, p=0.020), awareness of visit thereto (r=0.32, p<0.001). Influence factors emerged in the order of awareness of visit to an obstetrics-gynecology (β=0.30, p<0.001), intention to visit (β=0.16, p=0.036) with explanatory power of 12.2% (F=6.73, p<0.001).
