    Objective: The aim of this study is to assess pharmacists’ knowledge and attitude about menstruation and barriers that prevent them from providing menstruation counseling/services in Ajman, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was planned to approach potential respondents for the study. A self-administered questionnaire was delivered to pharmacists in public or private pharmacies (n = 50) practising in Ajman, UAE. Results: This study showed that 58% of the pharmacists had shown a good level of knowledge toward menstruation; however, confusion between the types of dysmenorrhea was observed among respondent pharmacists and 70% of them had not participated in menstrual disorder educational program. About 94% of pharmacists responded that they would like more education on menstrual disorders. The present study illustrated also that lack of time of the patients (76%) and patient health beliefs (76%) were the most common barriers that impact the pharmacist ability to provide menstrual counseling services. Conclusion: There is an essential need for educational interventions among the pharmacists to improve and update their knowledge about menstrual disorder.
