초록

이 연구는 14세의 여중학생의 초경 경험과 정신건강과의 연관성을 파악하고자 수행되었다. 연구 대상으로 제 8차 (2012년) 청소년건강행태 온라인 조사에 참여한 여중생 1학년 5,991명을 선별하였다. 데이터는 spss프로그램을 사용하여 빈도분석, t-test, chi-square, 로지스틱 회귀분석을 통하여 분석하였다. 대상자중 4,473명의 초경경험 여학생군(여학생의 평균 초경연령은 12.8세)과 1,518명의 비 초경경험 여학생군을 확인하였다. 초경경험과 정신건강의 로지스틱 분석결과, 지각 스트레스(OR=1.39, 1.20-1.62, p<0.001), 인지 우울증(OR=1.25, 1.10-1.42, p<0.05), 자살 생각(6OR=1.60, 1.38-1.87, <0.001), 자살 계획(OR=1.66, 1.33-2.81, p<0.001)과 자살 시도 (OR=1.42, 1.09-1.86, p<0.05)에 대한 위험 비 (OR)[95% confidence interval (CI)]는 초경 경험군에서 초경 비 경험군보다 높았다, 이러한 결과는 초경의 경험이 여중생의 정신건강에 연관성이 있음을 보여주고 있으며, 초경의 경험이 여자 청소년의 정신건강에 영향을 주는 중요한 요인이었음을 시사한다.
