Due to the high prevalence of menstrual disorders and fewer side effects of herbal medicines than chemical drugs, this study was performed with aim to compare the effects of chamomile and mefenamic acid capsules in hemorrhage of menstruation. Methods: This triple-blind randomized clinical trial study was performed on 90 students living in dormitories of Kashan University of Medical Sciences. They were randomly divided into two groups of chamomile and mefenamic acid. 45 cases received 250 mg of chamomile and 45 cases received 250 mg mefenamic acid per 8 hour for two cycles. Data collection tool was questionnaire, and Higam standard test was used to determine bleeding. Data was analyzed by SPSS statistical software (version 16), and Chi-square test, T-test, Fisher and paired t-test. PResults: The amount of bleeding was significantly decreased in both treatment groups compared to pre-treatment (P<0.05), but the difference between two groups was not significant (P>0.05). Decreased amount of bleeding caused by chamomile and mefenamic acid was not different in the second cycle compared to first cycle (P>0.05). Conclusion: The use of chamomile capsule can decrease hemorrhage in menstruation, so its consumption is recommended to treat this disorder in women.
