Discussion was based on objectives of the study, statistical analysis, current trends and previous related research. The study revealed that in control group and experimental group pre-test level of knowledge 20% adolescent girls had adequate knowledge, 80% had inadequate knowledge and 23.3% had adequate knowledge, 76.7% had inadequate knowledge respectively. There was no significant relationship between the level of knowledge of adolescent girls with their selected demographic variables both in experimental and control group. In control group pre-test and post-test mean ± SD for knowledge of adolescent girls were 10.07 ± 2.815 and 9.37 ± 2.906 respectively. The difference between mean ± SD of pre-test and post-test level of knowledge of control group was statistically non significant at p<0.05 level. In experimental group pre- test and post-test mean ± SD for knowledge score of adolescent girls was 10.33 ± 2.591 and 20.00 ± 4.807 respectively. The difference between mean ± SD of pre-test and post-test level of knowledge of experimental group was statistically significant.
