GARCIA IMIA, Ileana; AVILA GALVEZ, Elena; LORENZO GONZALEZ, Antonio  e  LARA CARMONA, Marisela. Conocimientos de los adolescentes sobre aspectos de la sexualidad. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2002, vol.74, n.4. ISSN 0034-7531.

A retrospective, descriptive and crosswise study was made in the health areas of "Wilfredo Pérez Pérez" Teaching Polyclinics in San Miguel del Padrón municipality, Havana City province, with the objective of exploring what a group of 100 adolescents aged 10-19 years of both sexes knows about sexuality in the year 2001. A high percentage of them had knowledge about anatomy of the genital system, the most suitable age for having children and contraception. In general, they did not know all the sexually-transmitted diseases but they did know the most efficient method to prevent them. The most relevant age group was 10-13 years old because of their poor knowledge about sexuality.

Palavras-chave : ADOLESCENCE; SEXUALITY [education]; HEALTH PROMOTION; SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES; SEX EDUCATION; FEMALE.
