Assessment of Knowledge of Adolescence Girls regarding Menstrual Hygiene in the Selected School of Bahadrabad, Haridwar

Ruchi RN RM, Farha Azmi


Abstract: Menstrual Studies that make the issue visible to the concerned policymakers and inform practical actions are very much warranted. Menstruation is a phenomenon unique to the females. Menstruation is still regarded as something unclean or dirty in Indian society. The reaction to menstruation depends upon awareness and knowledge about the subject. The manner in which a girl learns about menstruation and its associated changes may have an impact on her response to the event of menarche. Although menstruation is a natural process, it is linked with several misconceptions and practices, which sometimes result into adverse health outcomes. Hygiene related practices of women during menstruation are of considerable importance, especially in terms of increased vulnerability to reproductive tract infections (RTI). Therefore, increased knowledge about menstruation right from childhood may escalate safe practices and may help in mitigating the suffering of millions of women. With this background the present study was undertaken to assess the knowledge, beliefs, and source of information regarding menstruation among the adolescent school girls of the secondary school and also to identify the status of menstrual hygiene among them.
