Women play multiple roles of balancing between work and home resulting in negligence of their personal health. Tight schedules, deadlines of work, pressure in and out, untimely food, etc. are few reasons to alter life style and cause ailments. Stress at work leads to hormonal imbalances through the hypothalamo-pitutary-adrenal axis, causing alterations in ovarian hormones which may renders a woman susceptible to face menstrual disorders. The other problems to face are - poor quality sleep, pre menstrual syndrome (PMS), dysmenorrhea, intermittent bleeding, increased frequency of menstruation, heavy or scanty menstruation, and irregular menstruation. Ayurveda explains Vata and Rakta are the responsible for this situation. In further the dietetics and regimens too have their impact on contribution of menstrual disorders. A survey was conducted in three groups with relation to working pattern which revealed that average 60% of females from all groups were experiencing menstrual disorders.
