    Introduction: Menstrual problems are the major gynaecological problems which occur frequently in majority of women. Menstrual problems affect the physiology, psychology and well-being of a woman. By knowing what type of symptoms and when to expect symptoms, help women to schedule her activities. The problems may be due to heredity or hormonal imbalance. Many symptoms and illnesses are common in the general population, but only a minority result in consultations in primary care and even fewer in referral on to secondary care.This raises difficulties for management guidelines based on secondary care, since, if applied to all symptoms in the community, the workload implications may be large and the yield of serious disease low. Materials and Methodology: A survey was carried out to study various menstrual problems experienced by the girls and women with the age group between 12–35 years. A questionnaire was designed and 50 women were interviewed personally and their details were collected. Results: Out of the sample size of 50, irregular menstruation among the working women were noticed comparatively high than the home-makers. Under descriptive analysis, various questions were analysed comparatively between the working-women and home-makers. When chi-square test was done, the chi-square statistic is 3.3937. The p-value is .065447. The result is not significant at P <05. Conclusion: The development of symptoms of menstrual loss among women in the community is common, in contrast to the rarity of gynaecological malignancy. This raises concern about the usefulness of current guidelines, based on symptoms, advising women when to consult, and for the early detection of gynaecological malignancy in the community and primary care.
