Abstract

Introduction: premenstrual syndrome and dysmenorrhea are the most common menstrual disorders in young girls which lead to short-time absence from school, university or work. Since limited researches with opposite results have been conducted in this regard, this study was to compare the status of premenstrual syndrome and primary dysmenorrhea in active and non-active students. Methods: This descriptive-comparative study has been done on 80 female students (40 active and 40 non-active one) with age of 18 to 25 years. Active group had at least 3 session of regular exercise per week in a year. Non-active one weren’t member of any team and didn’t exercise regularly. Data were collected using signs of PMS and dysmenorrhea questionnaire. They were analyzed by the means of t-test and chi-square test. P less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results: The PMS symptoms of this study showed that active students had less physical (p<0.001), behavioral (p<0.001) and psychological (p<0.001) symptoms than non-active group. The menstrual pain was lower in active group than in non-active one (p<0.001). Conclusion: The prevalence of premenstrual syndrome and primary dysmenorrhea in non-active students is higher than in active students. Therefore, regular physical activity can have positive impact on pre-menstrual syndrome and primary dysmenorrhea
