Results: The study showed a highly statistically significant difference between pre and post educational package regarding knowledge, practices, and attitude of premenopausal women regarding sexuality. There was a highly significant correlation between total knowledge and total sexual history pre and post educational package. Conclusion: The implementation educational package significantly improved knowledge, practices, and attitude of premenopausal women regarding sexuality.
