Menstrual experience of adolescents in the USA: protocol for a scoping review
Nine members of the Medical Partnership family (three faculty: Julie Gaines, MLIS, Ed Sperr, Amy Baldwin, PhD, five students: Debbie Shim, Bryanna Moppins, Diane Park, Jasmine Patterson, Samantha Schoenl, and one alumna: Ronke Olowojesiku, MD) were recently published for their research on adolescent menstruation.
Olowojesiku R, Shim DJ, Moppins B, Park D, Patterson JO, Schoenl SA, Gaines JK, Sperr EV, Baldwin A. Menstrual experience of adolescents in the USA: protocol for a scoping review. BMJ Open. 2021 Feb 18;11(2):e040511. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2020-040511. PMID: 33602701; PMCID: PMC7896570.
Introduction: In recent years, there has been a growing desire to address issues related to menstruation, particularly for adolescent girls. In low-income and middle-income countries, prior literature review of the adolescent menstrual experience suggests the need for further research into the impact and efficacy of interventions with this population. There is evidence to suggest the need for initiatives and research in higher-income countries like the USA. To date, the body of research on adolescent menstrual experience in the USA remains uncharacterised. Therefore, we propose a scoping review of the literature on this subject to better inform on areas for future primary study.
