Anemia is a condition in which the number of red blood cells, or hemoglobin concentration is below. The prevalence of anemia is mostly due to iron deficiency. About 50% of anemia in women worldwide is caused by iron deficiency (WHO, 2012). This study aims to determine the correlation of menstrual patterns (menstrual cycle and duration of menstruation), nutritional status, and level of knowledge with the incidence of anemia in teenage girls. This study used an observational analytic design with cross sectional design. The number of samples of this study is 78 teenage girls which were selected using proportional stratified random sampling. Data collection was carried out by measuring BMI / U, examination of hemoglobin levels, and filling in questionnaires, then analyzed using the chi square test. The results showed that there was a correlation between nutritional status and the incidence of anemia (p value <0.05), and there was no correlation between menstrual patterns (menstrual cycle, duration of menstruation), and the level of knowledge with the incidence of anemia in teenage girls (p value> 0, 05).
