ABSTRACT:
In the Present study out of 1020 girls , the number of girls who indentified the female reproductive organs and aware of functions of organs was higher than those who identified the male reproductive organs and their functions . 66.47% students said that they were not aware about menstruation prior to onset of their own menstrual cycles . Only 25% of girls had knowledge about erection and eiaculation in males. 18.23% were knowing function of seminal fluid and 24% were aware of fertilization Knowledge of conception in relation to menses was scanty, only 6.56% were of that. Students knowing that father is responsible for the sex of unborn child were only 15.88%. 58% of them indentified AIDS as STD and the knowledge about other RTl's and STD's was negligible.The attitude of the students towards sex with multiple partners and premarital sex was of disagreement in majority. The conclusion derived was that the adolescent school girls are either ignorant or have some misconceptions about reproductive health and need an effective sexual and reproductive health education programme.
