The study adopted correlational research design. A total number of four hundred and sixty-two educated girls were selected for the study by the researcher using convenience sampling. The mean age and standard deviation of participants were 19 year and 8.79 respectively. Three hypotheses were formulated and tested by the researcher. Results revealed significant positive relationship between self-efficacy and disposition to use of female condom (r=.76; df (460); P<.05) and significant negative relationship between religiosity and disposition to use of female condom (r= -.64; df (460); P<.05) among educated unmarried girls.
