Introduction: Teenagers (especially girls) who are going through puberty are among vulnerable populations whose sexual needs receive little attention.

Data collection instrument was a researcher made questionnaire including 14 questions on demographic data and 46 questions on 4 domains of puberty, menstruation, sex relationship and reproduction using articles and resource reviews.Descriptive statistics and Chi-square, Kruskal-Wallis test were used for quantitative and qualitative data analysis.

Results: ­­The knowledge of girls on puberty, menstruation and reproductive was weak.
Need to get information on puberty health

The most important source of information on puberty (51/1), menstruation (54/2%) mother, sexual activity (42/5%) friends and reproduction (32/1%) was sister. There was a significant correlation between mother's education level and need to obtain information on puberty, menstruation and reproduction using Chi-square test (P<0/05).
