Abstract:
Background
Primary dysmenorrhea is characterized by cramping lower abdominal which happens just before and/ or during menstruation and has a negative impact on women's quality of life. The aim of this investigation was comparison of the effectiveness of walking assotiated with stretching exercises and cinnamon intake on the primary dysmenorrhea.
Methods

Exercise training program comprised 6 stretching exercise (30-45 min per day) and walking training (25-45 min per day), and 3 sessions per week for 8 weeks. Cinnamon (capsule containing 500 mg Cinnamon) used 3 times per day with beginning the pain and during first 72 h of menstrual, respectively. Visual analogue scale (VAS) and Cox Menstrual Scale (COX) were used for measuring the severity and duration of pain during menstruation. Repeated measures of ANOVA and one-way ANOVA used to analyze data.
Results
All the three interventions were associated with significantly decrease in the severity and duration of pain dysmenorrhea after 4 and/ or 8 weeks. There was no statistically significant difference between these the effectiveness of the interventions on the severity and duration of pain. But the effect of 8 weeks one of these interventions on pain severity and combined intervention on pain duration was only greater in comparison to the 4 weeks.
Conclusion
