Abstract (2. Language): 
The aim of the present study was to investigate the knowledge and experience about emergency contraception in our gynecologic population and to evaluate it with respect to educational level and age groups. The study was performed on 644 participants at the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department and Family Planning Unit of Gulhane Military Medical Academy. A questionnarie was performed to all participants. The rate of participants who knew emergency contraception correctly was 17.5%. The rate was higher among women who were young and whose educational level was high. Fifty three point nine per cent of women (n=347) did not know anything about emergency contraception. It may be concluded that in this population, the knowledge and the usage of emergency contraception is surprisingly low, and family planning education programs should include this type of contraception.

Kendi populasyonumuzda acil kontrasepsiyon ile ilgili bilgi ve tecrübenin eğitim seviyeleri ve yaş gruplarına göre ilişkisinin değerlendirilmesi amacıyla bu çalışma GATA Kadın Hastalıkları ve Doğum AD Aile Planlaması ünitesinde 644 katılımcıya anket uygulanarak gerçekleştirilmiştir. Acil kontrasepsiyonu doğru olarak bilen katılımcı oranı %17.5'dir. Genç ve eğitim seviyesi yüksek olan kadınlarda bu oran daha yüksek olarak saptanmıştır. Kadınların %53.9'nun (n= 347) acil kontrasepsiyon hakkında hiçbir bilgisi yoktu. Bu çalışma ile toplumumuzun acil kontrasepsiyon hakkında düşük bilgi seviyesine sahip olduğu ve kullanım oranının düşük olduğu sonucuna varılmıştır. Acil kontrasepsiyon metodları ve kullanımı aile planlaması eğitim programlarına dahil edilmelidir.
