Systematic random sampling technique was used to approach the study subjects until the required sample size was collected. Then the collected data was analyzed using SPSS window version 20. Result: The study finding showed that about 87.6% of the respondents know implant as contraceptives but the utilization of implant was only 20.6%. Respondent’s educational status was significantly associated with knowledge and utilization of implant contraceptive. Respondents who attended college or university were 9.519 times more knowledgeable about implant than those who couldn’t read and write at AOR=9.519 (1.208, 74.985), p=0.032). Mothers who attended primary school were 2.580 times using implant as contraception than those who couldn’t read and write at AOR=2.580 (1.255, 5.305), p=0.01)Conclusion and Recommendation: Even if most of respondents have knowledge about implant contraceptive still the practice of implant among FP users is very low.
