Menstruation cycle also called menstrual period is the discharge of blood from female reproductive tract i.e. inner uterine lining. Short or tremendously small periods are termed as Hypomenorrhea while those which last more than 7 days are called Hypermenorrhea. About 600 Females from 10 different professions i.e. unmarried Households, House wives, Teachers, Students, Paramedical staff, Social workers, Police, Tailors, Maids and Security guards were included in this study to examine the length of menstrual cycle in relation to different professions. An unlimited relation of profession and menstruation period was observed in this study, a decreased or prolonged menstrual period was observed in those women who were having more physical or mental activities as compare to sedentary ones. About 22.33% respondents were reported with 3-4 days of menstrual period, 45.00% respondents were observed with 5-6 days of menstrual period, 27.50% respondents were reported with 7-8 days of menstrual period while only 5.16% respondents were observed with the longest menstrual period i.e. 9-10 days. This reveals that the mental activity has also an effect on menstruation period. This study reveals that the menstrual period is also dependent upon the nature of the job / profession of a female. Period may be shortened or prolonged depend upon the nature of physical and mental activity.
