THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FREQUENCY AND DURATION OF CONSUMPTION OF KUNYIT ASAM WITH DYSMENORRHEA IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Keywords:Regularity, Length, Kunyit Asam Solution, Dysmenorrhea, Teenage Girls
Puberty is intimately associated with adolescence, one of which is the
first menstrual period. Young women frequently have dysmenorrhea as
a result of menarche. Dysmenorrhea that isn't medicated appropriately
might make it difficult for young women to go about their daily
lives. Consuming kunyit asam is one solution to relieve the intensity
of dysmenorrhea pain. This study aims to determine whether the
consumption of kunyit asam and its regularity during menstruation can
lower abdominal pain in dysmenorrhea.
In October 2021, a cross-sectional survey was conducted at the Yayasan
Indocement Middle School in Bogor, West Java. Cluster random
sampling was used to collect data from 108 junior high school students
who completed the Form Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ) questionnaire
to determine the frequency and duration of kunyit asam consumption and
the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) questionnaire to reduce the severity of
dysmenorrhea pain. The Chi-Square test was used to examine the data,
with the level of <0.05 as the significance level.
Of 108 respondents, most of them experienced menarche at >11 years
old (90.74%), always take kunyit asam solution (57.41%) with duration
>3 months (74.07%) and did not have menstrual pain (88.89%). In
junior high school adolescents, a significant correlation was discovered
between the frequency and the duration of kunyit asam consumption and
dysmenorrhea (p=0.016, p=0.007).
In junior high school students, there is a correlation between the frequency
and duration of kunyit asam consumption and dysmenorrhea.
