Data from Menstruation and PA (10-2020)



Through this project we aimed to further understand the influence that menstruation has on adolescent girls' experiences of physical activity. Nine focus groups were conducted with 46 girls aged 13-15 years across three schools between September and November 2018. The discussions explored; experiences of, barriers to and facilitators of being active during menstruation, experiences in P.E./sports teams and talking with others about periods and being active. Data were analysed using thematic analysis.
