Roshani Bhujel* and Bijaya Adhikari

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Menstruation is a normal physiological process of females at their reproductive age. The poor knowledge and understanding of menstruation may lead to unsafe hygienic practice that intern increases the risk of reproductive tract infections, cervical cancer, poor academic performance and overall poor quality of life. The objective of the study was to assess awareness and practice of adolescent girls on menstrual hygiene in Janakpurdham, Nepal. Methods: Descriptive study conducted among 80 adolescent girls in Pidari chowk-8, Janakpurdham. Non-probability purposive sampling technique was used to select the respondents. Data was collected between 2020/10/04 to 2020/10/17 by face-to-face interview technique using self-developed structured interview questionnaire. Data was analyzed using PSPP. Results: Majority (80%) of the adolescent girls had adequate awareness whereas 20% of them had inadequate awareness regarding menstrual hygiene. However, only 1.3% adolescent girls had good practice and majority of adolescent girls (98.7%) had poor practice regarding menstrual hygiene. Conclusion: Study concluded that majority of adolescent girls had adequate awareness but poor practice for proper menstrual hygiene. There is need of adolescent girls to get adequate information about healthy menstrual practices. This demonstrates a need to design acceptable awareness creation and advocacy programs to improve safe menstrual hygienic practice of adolescent girls during menstruation.
