Objectives: Persian Medicine (PM) encompasses the fields of preventive medicine, disease control and treatment. PM believes in the existence of Cold and Hot natures in humans (Mizaj). A person's temperament is mostly related to recognizing the most appropriate diet and way of life to promote health. This study was carried out to examine the correlation of uterine temperament and primary dysmenorrhea.
Materials and Methods: The present research is a cross sectional (descriptive correlation) study conducted on 105 students living in the dormitories of Tabriz University of Medical Sciences within the age range of 18 to 35 years old for 3 months in 2017. The sampling method was randomization. Data analysis was done by SPSS software (version 24), through Chi-square, biserial rb, and Mann-Whitney tests.
Results: The frequency of cold-dry temperament in patients with dysmenorrhea was higher than other temperaments (26.2%). No significant correlation was found between the intensity of pain and body temperament (P= 0.421) or between the intensity of pain and uterine temperament (P=0.508). There was a meaningful relationship between the duration of pain and body temperament (P=0.049) and between the duration of pain and uterine temperament (P=0.027).
Conclusion: The duration of menstrual pain in patients with cold temperament is longer compared to that in patients with hot temperament. Adherence to traditional Iranian medicine recommendations, in dealing with cold temperament, can be effective in reducing the duration of pain in these patients.
