This descriptive and retrospective study was carried out in the multidisciplinary service of Infanto-Juvenile Gynecology of the municipality Plaza de la Revolución with the aim of characterizing the relation between the ages of the menarche and the first sexual intercourse in patients assisting to the consultation from July 1996 to December 2011. The patients’ age at the menarche, their age at the moment of the first sexual intercourse, and also the use of protection methods and search for information previous to the experience were taken into account. Data were collected from the individual clinical records of the service and processed analyzing frequency, media and range. It was identified that the average age of arrival to menarche was 12.3 years, and the average age when having the first sexual intercourse was 15.1 years. The difference between both parameters was 2.8 years. 50.5 % of the patient stated the use of any contraceptive method; condom was the most frequent one (78.4 %). The systematic attention in these services would improve their sexual and reproductive health.
