Menstruation is a series of physiological processes that allow disruption of the menstrual pattern, such as the menstrual cycle, menstrual duration, the amount of menstrual blood, and pain during menstruation (dysmenorrhea). One of the factors which affect the disruption of menstrual patterns is physical activity. Physical activity is any movement of the body produced by skeletal muscle that requires energy expenditure. According to WHO (World Health Organization) 2018 data, 84% of women do less physical activity than men. Female adolescent still pays less attention to physical activity and disturbances during menstruation. This study aims to find out the menstrual pattern of female adolescent, depicting of physical activity, and to find out the relationship between physical activity and menstrual patterns of female adolescent at 1 Cibinong Senior High School in Bogor Regency. This research is a quantitative study with a cross sectional design. Random sampling technique is used to gather the sample. The sample in this study consist of 75 students on 11th grade at 1 Cibinong Senior High School. Questionnaire is used as data collection instrument. Bivariate and multivariate are used to analyze the data. Based on the results of the bivariate test, there was a significant relationship between physical activity and menstrual patterns, namely the menstrual cycle p = 0.000 < 0.05 (alpha) and disorders during menstruation with dysmenorrhea p = 0.019 < 0.05 (alpha). There is a relationship between physical activity and menstrual patterns.
