L’articolo pubblicato sulla rivista peer-reviewed European Journal of Pediatrics ha dimostrato come il menarca influisca su tutti i componenti della qualità della vita, dall'umore, all'autostima alle relazioni sociali, sottolineando pertanto come questa variazione ormonale sia responsabile dei cambiamenti psicologici ed emotivi delle adolescenti, aprendo l'opportunità ad approcci preventivi rivolti non solo ai tradizionali fattori di rischio, ma secondo una prospettiva più integrata.

Abstract
Adolescence is a period characterized by rapid physical maturation, involving bodily changes that often necessitate a reorganization of self-perception. The current study investigated the impact of menarche on the determinants of quality of life in healthy female adolescents. Data were collected from 361 healthy female adolescents divided into two groups: pre- and post-menarcheal event. Participants, according the AVATAR project, completed Italian version of KIDSCREEN-52 questionnaires on health-related quality of life. Pre-menarcheal females had the higher score in psychological well-being and mood than post-menarcheal females. As concerns self-perception, post-menarcheal females exhibited lower score compared to pre-menarcheal females. In social context, pre-menarcheal females perceived a better school environment, also when we considered it in terms of social acceptance.Conclusion: Menarche event affects all the components of quality of life, from mood, self-esteem to social relationships, underlining how this hormonal variation is responsible of psychological and emotional changes, opening up the opportunity for preventive approaches aimed not only at traditional risk factors but according a more integrated perspective.What is Known:• Adolescence is a time of increasing behavioural divergence between males and females, probably due to the different hormonal development.• There is a possible link between menarche and the health-related quality of life variables.What is New:• Menarche condition affects all the components of quality of life, from mood to social relationships.• Post-menarcheal condition is associated to psychosocial and emotional changes, with possible multiple pathways to post-pubertal depressive symptoms.
