An exploratory study aimed at validating an instrument for the evaluation of the literacy level of sexual and reproductive health in 30 medicine students was carried out, taking into account the skills for an appropriate literacy. Tests of stability with test and retest were carried out and the percentage of these students answers was constant; also, the apparent and content validity by a group of experts was searched, as well as the feasibility starting from the perception of the studied individuals. The original version of the selected measuring instrument was adapted and the new version was valid for the investigation in a wider sample of students
