ABSTRACTA transversal and descriptive study was carried out at the provincial Infantile and Juvenile Gynecology consult of «Mariana Grajales» Gynecobstetric Hospital located in Santa Clara from May, 2013 to December, 2014 with the objective of characterizing patients with menstrual disorders after menarche. A number of 200 remitted adolescents with irregular menstruation were selected by means of a simple random sampling. The 76,5 % was between 12 to 16 years of age, and all of them were referred to the consult after receiving an unnecessary hormonal treatment that does not resolve their menstrual disorder. The 58,7 % did not have any previous complementary study, and the 66,8 % had abundant menstrual flow without affectation in clinical and hemodynamic condition. A complete patients’ evaluation showed that only 15 of them needed a hormonal treatment; the rest of the teenage girls and their families just required some kind of guidance, as well as, a medical follow- up in primary health care.
