Aims: Domestic violence against men, an important issue in today's societies, can be exacerbated during a woman's pregnancy due to special bio-psychological conditions. Various factors, including social determinants of health, can influence this area, which requires further study. This study aimed to investigate the social determinants of pregnant women's violence against their husbands. 
Instruments & Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out on 206 pregnant women's husbands who were referred to the prenatal centers in Tehran during 2018-2019. The subjects were selected using the available sampling method. Data were collected using demographics and the Conflict Tactile Scale-2 questionnaires. Data were analyzed using SPSS 21 software using T student Kruskal Wallis and analysis variance tests through the statistical significance of p<0.05.
Findings: The results showed a significant relationship between age (p=0.004), husbands' age (p<0.001), marriage age (p=0.004), husbands' marital age (p=0.003), housing situation (p=0.009), men and women marital satisfaction (p=0.001 and p=0.008 respectively), women's perceived psycho-receiving emotional support from husbands (p=0.008), men and women unwanted pregnancy (p=0.017 and p=0.01 respectively), house ownership (p=0.01), and smoking by pregnant women (p=0.016) with pregnant women's use of violence against their husbands.
Conclusion: Regarding the various factors associated with the violence perpetrated by pregnant women against their husbands, it is important to consider the appropriate psychological and educational interventions in prenatal care services to reduce the severity and frequency of violence by pregnant women against men, after providing solutions to involve men to identifying the effective factors.
