Introduction: Developing reproductive hea-lth and addressing its different dimensions is one of the basic steps in order to provide the society and family’s health, particularly women. This research mainly aims to study and recognize the effective factors on mother’s reproductive health in Koohdasht and Dorood.
 Materials & Methods: This study was a cr-oss-sectional survey method and data was collected through questionnaire. The study population included the mothers between 15 to 45 years old living in Koohdasht and Dorood. Based on Cochran formula, the Sample size for women in Koohdash was equal to 198 and for Dorood equal to 162. The sampling method was multi-stage clu-ster sampling. Finally, data was analyzed by SPSS through Mann-Whitney test and Spe-arman correlation coefficient at the signify-cant level of P <0.05. Findings: Given the Spearman correlation coefficient, a negative and low correlation (p=0.013, r=0.131) was seen between re-productive health and age in the first pregnancy. Based on the findings on wo-men who married at the ages of 15 to 29 ye-ars old enjoyed more reproductive health in comparison to those who married before 15 or after 30 years old. There was a negative and low correlation between reproductive health and gender priorities for infant (p=0.039, r=-.109). Women living in urban areas (195.21) significantly (p=0.12) enjo-yed higher reproductive health in comp-arison to women living in rural areas (167.63). Also, there was a significant difference between Koohdasht and Dorood in terms of reproductive health (p=0.025). Reproductive health of women living in Koohdasht was (169.4) lower than women living in Dorood (194.07).
 Discussion & Conclusion: Reproductive he-alth of women living in Koodasht was lo-wer than women living in Dorood and wo-men living in urban areas have higher rep-roductive health than women living in rural areas. Preferring boy infant than girl dec-reases the reproductive health due to the more number of parturitions and decrease in pregnancy intervals. Overall, according to this research findings, increasing the wo-men’s knowledge of reproductive health and family planning through the training both of cities is crucial.
