The research data were analyzed by Mann Whitney and Wilcoxon statistical tests. The results of the analysis showed a decrease in dysmenorrhea pain symptoms before the intervention there was no significant difference (p> 0.05), whereas after the administration of the intervention showed there were significant differences in the intervention and control groups with a value of p = 0.001.
