Objective: the low sleep quality and pain in girls with primary dysmenorrhea, this study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of self-compassion training and positive attitude to experience sleep quality and decrease of pain intensity in girls with primary dysmenorrhea.
Methods: The research was semi-experienced that was conducted as a multi-group, pre-test, and post-test. The sample of the study was girls with primary dysmenorrhea, which were characterized among students in the first district of Rasht City (first and second high school) and were placed in three experimental and control groups. To collect the data and to screen the questionnaire for premenstrual symptoms, Peters Burg’s sleep quality questionnaire, and McGill’s intensity of pain questionnaire were applied. A one-way Analysis Of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used for analyzing data.
Results: Positive thinking training and self-compassion training were effective in increasing sleep quality and decreased intensity of pain in girls with primary dysmenorrhea (P<0.001). The effect of positive thinking on quality of life was more than compassion training (P<0.005), but self-compassion does not affect pain severity.
Conclusion: Findings indicate the impact of training and self-compassion in preventing the neuropsychological well-being of girls with primary dysmenorrhea.
