Abstract: 

Adolescence is a period from childhood to adulthood and is characterized by a spurt in physical, endocrinal, emotional and mental growth, with a change from complete dependence to relative independence. The period of adolescence for a girl is a period of physical and psychological preparation for safe motherhood. As the direct reproducers of future generations, the health of adolescent girls influences not only their own health, but also the health of the future population. Almost a quarter of India’s population comprises of girls below 20 years. One of the major physiological changes that takes place in adolescent girls is the onset of menarche which is often associated with problems of irregular menstruation, excessive bleeding and dysmenorrhea. Of these dysmenorrhea is one of the common problems experienced by many adolescent girls. Therefore, a descriptive study to assess the knowledge regarding home remedies to relieve dysmenorrhea among adolescent girls in selected schools of Ludhiana Punjab was undertaken with the objectives: (1) To assess the knowledge regarding home remedies to relieve dysmenorrhea among adolescent girls (2) To identify the relationship of knowledge of adolescent girls with selected variables e.g. age, class, religion, area of residence, age at menarche, duration of menstrual cycle, duration of menstrual period, education of parents, flow of menstruation and sources of information. A non-experimental, descriptive study was conducted in two selected schools of Ludhiana, Punjab. The study sample consisted of total 60 adolescent girls from the selected schools. Data was collected by self structured questionnaire and analyzed by inferential statistics and presented through tables and figures. Findings revealed that maximum (83.3%) adolescent girls had average knowledge followed by (10%) good and (6.67%) had least below average score. Variables i.e. age, class, area of residence, age at menarche, duration of menstrual cycle and duration of menstrual period were found to be non-significant and variables i.e. religion, education of parents, flow of menstruation and source of information were found to be significant.
