The Menstrual Practice Measures website provides information and resources for two tools that can be used to measure self-reported menstrual experiences.

The Menstrual Practice Needs Scale

  • This is a set of questions that measure people’s menstrual experiences. The scale focuses on a respondents’ experience of their last menstrual period and captures experiences of the practices undertaken, and environments used to manage menses. Items ask about perceptions of comfort, satisfaction, adequacy, reliability as well as worries and concerns during the last menstrual period.

The Menstrual Practices Questionnaire

  • This questionnaire provides a set of best practice self-report questions to capture respondents’ menstrual hygiene practices. That is, all of the activities undertaken in order to collect, contain, and remove menstrual blood from the body.
