Adolescence is the time of life between puberty and psychophysical maturity when crucial endocrinological, metabolic, somatic and psychological changes occur in girls. During this process, sequential phases mark the maturation of the complex endocrinological system that comprises the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and ovary, and their interactions. Healthy reproductive function is the expected endpoint of this process. The timing of this process is individual-specific, within a broad range of normality. Serious gynecological pathology is rare in this age group, but menstrual disturbances are not uncommon and may add further disruption to this difficult phase for adolescents and their families. It is likely that many adolescents with menstrual disturbances never present to their family doctor or gynecologist. The most frequent menstrual disorders are polymenorrhea, oligomenorrhea and dysmenorrhea. Menstrual abnormalities are more common among younger girls, becoming less frequent as they grow older, 3–5 years after menarche. The aim of this review paper is to highlights about menstrual disorders and their treatment in Unani system of medicine.
