Abstract :

Aim: The main purpose of our research was to measure the incidence of numerous menstruation disorders in female adolescents pursuing health sciences, as well as their relationship with academic pressure.
Methods: It really was cross-sectional research that took place sometime Between 2020 and April 2021 at health colleges of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in Lahore, Pakistan. Eight hundred fifty young women between the ages of 19 and 26 years old responded to a questionnaire on menstruation problems and anxiety symptoms. The Statistical Package for The Social, version 15.0, was applied to analysis information.
Results: Ninety-two percent of college students had some type of menstruation issue. The many menstrual disorders described and their frequencies comprised inconsistent menstruation (28%), abnormal vaginal bleeding (10.4%), amenorrhea (10.3%), menorrhagia (4.5%), dysmenorrhea (85.8%), and premenstrual problems (47.8 percent). HPS was found in 38% of pupils. HPS and menstruation difficulties were shown to have a strong positive connection. Girls having HPS had 5 times, 3 times, and 3.9 times higher probabilities ratio for amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, and menstrual problems, respectively (p0.06).
Conclusion: In the target group, the most common menstruation disorders (dysmenorrhea and premenstrual signs) were significantly related with anxiety. As a result, it is suggested that health science students are getting early psychiatric and gynecological psychotherapy to prevent possible difficulties.
