Menstrual Health is an important component of adolescent and adult health, including the increasing efforts worldwide to empower, educate, and engage country leaders, communities, families, and adolescent girls and boys about menstruation, and the rights of women and girls to hygienically, comfortably, and safely manage their periods.
Menstrual disorders are disruptive physical and/or emotional symptoms just before and during menstruation, including heavy bleeding, missed periods and unmanageable mood swings. Some women get through their monthly periods easily with few or no concerns. Their periods come like clockwork, starting and stopping at nearly the same time every month, causing little more than a minor inconvenience. However, other women experience a host of physical and/or emotional symptoms. From heavy bleeding and missed periods to unmanageable mood swings, these symptoms may disrupt a woman’s life in major ways. They frequently affect the quality of life of adolescents and young adult women and hinder their psychological, mental, physical and social health.
Due to changing livelihoods post-industrialisation, there has been a tsunami of Life-style related disorders which were initially triggered due to sedentary Lifestyle. The epidemic of Menstrual Disorders, to an extent is a result of adoption of sedentary life style by Adolescents and Young Adult Women, who are constantly in a hustle to excel in their career, but at the cost of their menstrual health.
Menstrual patterns can be affected by a number of factors, including age, ethnicity, family history, smoking, physical activity, and dietary habits. There are various types of menstrual disorders, including dysmenorrhea, premenstrual symptoms, menorrhagia, polymenorrhea, abnormal vaginal bleeding, amenorrhea, oligomenorrhea, and irregular menstruation. Studies have shown that a large proportion of the female population of reproductive age suffers from menstruation-related health issues. Menstrual problems not only carry an economic burden but are also one of the most common causes of absenteeism and poor academic performance among young females. 20-90% of adolescent girls reported dysmenorrhea, and almost 15% of those experienced severe dysmenorrhea. Another menstrual problem that can affect women’s daily activities is Pre-Menstrual syndrome (PMS). Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common reproductive and endocrinology disorder found in 6-10% of the female population. Polycystic Ovary Disease of (PCOD) is a kind of hormonal disorder that affects one in 10 women.
