Introduction: Postpartum pain is one of the common problems in mothers، and mothers tend to use medicinal plants for soothing the pain. In recent years، the clinical performance، according to evidence، was noticed. Therefore، this clinical trial was designed and implemented to determine the effects of Zataria multiflora Boiss capsule and Ibuprofen on postpartum pain. Method: This randomized double-blinded clinical trial was performed on 100 mothers that had natural vaginal birth in Imam Khomeini hospital in Ahwaz in 2016. The women were randomly assigned into two groups of Zataria multiflora Boiss capsule and Ibuprofen. Then, the subjects received one capsule every 6 h for 24 h. The pain intensity was studied before each intervention and 1 h after that using the numerical scale of pain. The data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 18) and statistical tests, including Mann-Whitney U test، t-test، Chi-square test, and Repeated measures. P-value less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results:In this study, both groups had no statistically significant difference in the interventions, such as the age، number of delivery, and weight of neonate (P>0/05). Comparing the mean scores of postpartum pain intensity between the two groups after the fourth intervention showed no significant difference (P=0/057), and in both groups, the intensity of postpartum pain decreased. Conclusion: According to the results of the present study, Zataria moltiflora Boiss capsule similar to Ibuprofen can decrease the postpartum pain intensity.
