Abstract

Introduction: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is the term used to describe the physical, mental, or behavioral changes that mostly adult and middle-aged women experience during the luteal phase of menstrual cycle every month. The aim of this study was to study the correlation of aerobic power and the prevalence of premenstrual syndrome in female athletes and non athletes. Methods: In this study, forty women who had regular menstrual cycle were enrolled. The mean age of participants was 23 years old and the mean weight was 56kg. All of the participants were engaged in Bruce test and filling of premenstrual syndrome questionnaire within luteal phase in days 18 to 28 of their menstrual cycle. The descriptive analysis was used for evaluation of descriptive variables and Pierson coefficient was used to study the correlation of variables in our study. The 0.05 was taken as the statistically significant value. Results: The results showed that symptoms of premenstrual syndrome were less prevalent in athletes group than other group. Also, the result of Pierson correlation test showed that there was significant inverse correlation between premenstrual syndrome with aerobic power (p< 0/05, r= -0/67). Conclusion: Since, exercise is a safer alternative in comparison to medical treatment of premenstrual syndrome so women should do aerobic exercises to decrease symptoms premenstrual syndrome.
