Moreover, they were divided into two groups; 42 acceptors who used conventional documentation and 42 acceptors who used Smart Contraception documentation. The data were analyzed by using Univariate analysis to find out the mean and Bivariate analysis by using Chi-square test.

Results: From 29 out of 42 (69%) samples, it was found that the accessibility of documentation by using Smart Contraception was easier than using conventional method, meanwhile 13 out of 42 (31%) samples found it difficult. In conventional method, 23 out of 42 (54,8%) samples found it easier in documenting by using conventional method than using Smart Contraception application, meanwhile 19 out of 42 samples found it difficult. The statistical result showed that p value 0.006 (<0.05) which means that there was difference between the use of Smart Contraception application and conventional method in doing documentation.
