Aims.Approximately 49% of pregnancies in adolescents aged 15-19 years are mistimed. Significantly in Jambi City, this trend has increased. It reflects adolescents' lack of understanding about healthy living, the risks of sexual relations, and the rejection of unwanted relationships. This study aimed to determine the effect of counseling using videos and leaflets on adolescents' knowledge about the impact of mistimed pregnancy.
Materials & Methods. This quasi-experimental study used a pre-post test with a control group design involving 48 adolescents in the video intervention group and 48 adolescents in the leaflet education group. This research was carried out in January - June 2021. Research data were analyzed using the Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney tests.
Findings. Based on the analysis, adolescent knowledge about the impact of mistimed pregnancy is poor (91.7%) for both groups. After counseling interventions using videos and leaflets, adolescents' knowledge increased to Good by 91.7% and 89.6%, respectively. The Mann-Withney statistical test shows the difference in effectiveness between video media and Leaflet media. The study's results showed that there were differences in the average knowledge before and after the intervention and differences in the effectiveness between video and leaflet media.
Conclusion. Education using video media is more effective than leaflet media in increasing adolescent knowledge about mistimed pregnancy.
