Extended Data from Menstruation and PA



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.
