Teenagers are dynamic figures in their daily behavior. Behavior is the way an individual behaves and does something. Something that can have an impact on him, this impact can be conscious or unconscious. Young women are individuals who have moved on from childhood but are not yet adults. Regarding behavior, it needs guidance and guidance. The need for guidance in this case is how to care for the reproductive organs; intimate organs. Almost the majority of early adolescents have poor knowledge and attitudes that are less supportive of caring for intimate organs and breasts. Many teenagers do not know the importance of caring for intimate organs and do not even know how to care for them properly. Based on this background, this community service aims to provide education to young women in the Gelora Depok Middle School environment to be more caring and attentive to their reproductive health. After education and health promotion related to genital hygiene care and breast self-examination (BSE), the young women were very enthusiastic and would apply what they had been taught in their daily lives. Teachers and parents are expected to always accompany young women in the process of caring for genital hygiene and examining their own breasts.
