|概要||To define the concept of menstrual disorders in young women.
Articles were searched from PubMed (2010-2020) using the keywords “Young Women,”
“Dysmenorrhea” and “Premenstrual Syndrome.” Eight articles were extracted from 32
articles. Regarding articles in Japan, Japan Medical Abstracts Society website and CiNii
Articles were searched, using the keywords “Young Women” and “menstrual disorders.”
23 articles were extracted from 165 articles. A total of 31 articles (23 articles in Japan, 8
articles from overseas) were targeted.
Six attributes: Actual condition of menstrual disorders, risk of menstrual disorder,
endometriosis and treatment, use of analgesics, use of oral contraceptives (hereinafter
OC), and Quality of Life (hereinafter QOL) in menstrual period. Five preconditions: Young
women and motivation, women’s lifestyle and change in life habits, menstrual mechanism
and normal values, classification and symptoms / treatment of menstrual disorder, view
of menstruation and menstrual education. Four consequences: Awareness of menstruation,
education surrounding menstruation, research on menstruation, and issues related
menstruation were extracted.
This concept was defined as “in actual conditions of menstrual disorders, there is great
variation, such as dysmenorrhea, PMS, and irregular menstruation, and accordingly,
related risks have been observed, and the existence of endometriosis is also partially
indicated. Analgesics and OC are not appropriately utilized, and QOL of young women
during menstrual period decreases.”
