Background: Social norms that assume that talking about reproductive health is taboo and that basic
education is often misunderstood can encourage adolescents to engage in uncontrolled sexual behavior.
Lack of knowledge regarding the importance of reproductive health can increase deviations in social
behavior. The number of early marriages that occurred in Ponorogo increased by about 50 percent in the
range from January to August 2020. The purpose of the research was to know about the effect of audiovisual
media on improving knowledge about reproductive and sexual health rights in SMK N 1 Ponorogo.

questionnaire with control group design. The total sample of 84 respondents was taken using a simple
random sampling technique. The population used is class XII students of SMK N 1 Ponorogo. The sample
used met the inclusion criteria, namely a healthy state, class XII and was willing to be a respondent. The
independent variable is education using audio-visual media about reproductive and sexual health rights

Signed Rank Test. Results: There was an influence of providing education through audio-visual media on
increasing knowledge about reproductive and sexual health rights in the experimental group after being
given audio-visual media on health education with a p value (0.001). Conclusions: Providing audio visual
media about reproductive health education can improve knowledge and information in adolescents.
