Menstruation, or period, is normal vaginal bleeding that happens as a part of a woman’s monthly cycle. The menstrual cycle is that the hormonal process a woman’s body goes through monthly to get ready for a possible pregnancy. Regular menstrual periods within the years between puberty and menopause are usually a sign that the body is functioning normally. Irregular or heavy, painful periods are not normal. Many women get premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms. It encompasses the foremost common issues, like mild cramping and fatigue, but the symptoms usually get away when the period begins. Menstruation that is too heavy or too light, or the entire absence of a cycle, may suggest that other issues are contributing to an abnormal menstrual cycle. Menstrual hygiene plays an important role in the health of young women. This study focuses on menstrual problems among adolescent girls. The main objectives of the present study are; to find out the awareness regarding menstrual problems among adolescent girls, and to investigate the problems about menstruation among adolescent girls.
