Keywords:Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and Structured Teaching Programme
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders. PCOS is a
complex, heterogeneous disorder of uncertain etiology. PCOS produces symptoms in approximately 5%
to 10% of women of reproductive age (12–45 years old). It is thought to be one of the leading causes of
female infertility and the most frequent endocrine problem in women of reproductive age. Adolescents aged
between 10-19 years account for more than one fifth of the world’s population. In India, this age group
forms 21.4 percent of the total population. Menstrual abnormalities are one of the common problems
of adolescents. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the commonest cause of an-ovulatory infertility.
This study was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of a structured teaching programme on knowledge
regarding polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) among adolescent girls at a selected school of Raipur.
Quantitative research approach with pre-experimental design (one group pretest- posttest design) was
adopted for this study. The study was conducted in a selected school at Raipur i.e. Maharshi Vidya Mandir.
The sample size was 100. Adolescent girls between the age of 13-17 years were selected. Non probability
convenient sampling was used. The Structured Teaching Programme was effective for adolescent girls
according to the level of knowledge before and after the intervention. The obtained t- value (24.92) was
statistically highly significant at 0.05 levels.
