Methods: A community-based cross sectional household survey was conducted. And pretested questionnaires were administered for 196 women of reproductive age in shebedino from June; to July 2019. All research group members were undertaken data collection .216women of reproductive age in shebedino were selected by systematic random sampling technique and the data was collected from house to house . The data were entered and cleaned in SPSS version 20 for analysis. Multivariate Logistic regression was used identify factors associated with unmet needs for family planning.

Result: The Westoff model revealed that the total unmet need for family planning was 17%; 12% for birth spacing and 5% for birth limiting. Multivariate regression revealed that the unmet need was significantly associated with age, region of residence, experience of child loss, education level, partner’s education level and knowledge level on contraceptives (p < 0.05).

Conclusion: The unmet need for family planning was still quite high among the respondents and associated with various determinants that should be considered while planning for scaling-up healthcare program. To address this current high level of unmet need for family planning in urban regions, the government should focus on promoting level of education beyond primary level, improve maternal and child healthcare, and adopt region and age specific programmatic actions in order to reduce unmet need to an acceptable level.
