Menstrual practices among adolescent girls in rural area (pp. 305-309) $45.00
Authors:  Ravish H Shankaraiah, Sheela P Haveri, Katti S Mallappa, and Wantamutte A Saheb
Adolescence is a period of major physical and psychological change with sexual development, as well as great changes in social interactions and relationship. Owing to these normal, rather drastic changes, many have a feeling that they are no longer in control of their body or mind and can develop anxiety and abnormal behavior which can cause long lasting damage to body and personality. The present study was conducted to assess the knowledge and practices regarding menstruation among adolescent girls in rural areas. A cross sectional study was conducted in three rural areas of Belgaum District, India having the cumulative population of 11,886. The data was analyzed using EPI-Info version 6.0 software package. The majority of these adolescent girls had taboos, beliefs or restrictions related to menstruation. The hygienic practices during menstruation of these adolescent girls were not satisfactory. Most adolescent girls had one or more health problems during menstruation. Health education emphasizing on adolescent health in schools as well as through mass media and public health approach is needed especially in conservative and traditional populations. We also should think about educative sessions to the parents especially mothers and other family members, so that they can be trained to impart knowledge on menstruation and related issues to their children.
