Abstract: Objective: The present study concentrates on the need of young people aged approximately 18‐22 for accurate information on family planning and sex education provided by trained health professionals. Materials and Methods: 350 questionnaires were filled out by a random sample of students at the Athens Technical University/TEI. A distribution of the percentage frequencies of the multiple values for each variable was calculated, as well as the correlation between selected variables (Pearson’s x², Fisher’s exact test). Results: The average age within the sample, consisting primarily of women, was 21.1 years. 80.7% of the sample seemed to be familiar with the goals of Planned Parenthood, and according to the overwhelming majority of persons interviewed; sex education should begin in adolescence. Nevertheless, only 35% of the population had ever consulted a trained professional on matters of contraception, but rather their partners or friends were deemed to be a satisfactory source of information.
