A woman from the time she attains her puberty till her menopause is undergoing constant hormonal fluctuation. Changes in the hormone, progesterone and estrogen bring changes in general health as well as in the oral health. The gingiva gets inflamed and leads into gingivitis. This condition when untreated becomes periodontitis- inflammation of the gums and tissues surrounding the tooth. This study aims to isolate the cultivable periodontal pathogens, from periodontitis and to correlate with the oral hygiene of women under study. Itcan be concluded from the datas from the above study that Post menopausal women are prone to periodontitis than premenopausal women. Awareness should be bought among Indian women population, especially in rural areas on the importance of oral health hygiene.
