There is evidence to suggest that being mindful of menstrual changes can impact a person's attitude and behavior toward their menstrual cycle. This, in turn, can affect their overall physical and mental well-being. This study aimed to investigate the knowledge, attitude, and behavior of exceptionally talented female students in Kerman toward their menstrual period.
The statistical population of the study included two-hundred-fourty-one exceptionally talented female students in the tenth academic year of Kerman, of which one-hundred-fifty-nine were selected using multi-stage cluster sampling. Then, information was collected using standard questionnaires of the attitude towards menstruation of Mohammadi Rizi et al. 2012 and students' awareness and behavior regarding the menstrual health of Mohammad Alizadeh Charandai et al. 2014. Pearson correlation coefficient and Tukey test were used to analyze the data.
The findings showed that students' awareness, performance, and attitudes toward menstruation were average. The results showed that there is no relationship between menstrual awareness and students' behavior in this period,(P>0.05) but there is a significant relationship between the positive attitude to this period and menstrual function in two dimensions physical and emotional health.(P<0.05) There was also a significant relationship between awareness and negative attitude towards menstruation with the father's job and the behavior of menstruation with the mother's education.(P<0.05)
Considering the relationship between the variables, it is recommended to include more information about menstruation in school curricula and textbooks to increase students' awareness and improve their attitudes and performance.
