Florida high school athletes required to release menstrual information

October 6, 2022

On Tuesday, Jacksonville.com reported that Florida high school athletics officials are requiring female athletes to report their menstruation history. While releasing some medical information to school officials has been a requirement for participating in cross country, track and other high school athletics for years, documenting menstrual history is new and has many health professionals, journalists, athletes and parents concerned for students’ privacy in the wake of recent legislation criminalizing abortion in many parts of the US.
