Introduction: Medicinal herbs have a history as old as human creation and using them as a healing agent has been common all over the world since anci-ent times. Medicinal herbs have been also used in treating dysmenorrheal as one of the most common gynecological problems in women. In recent years, a variety of nutrition therapies have been used for the treatment of dysmen-orrheal. But considering that the use of any medication has side effects in addition to therapeutic effects, using chemical plants along the drug may be helpful in the treatment of dysme-norrheal. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the effect of medicinal herbs in relieving the symptoms of dysmenorrheal among female students in Ardabil University of medical scie-nces.
Materials & Methods: This is a quasi-experimental study which was done on 90 female students in Ardabil Univ-ersity. Random sampling was done during 6 month in 2013, and the data collection instruments included demographic ch-aracteristics and visual pain scale. D-escriptive and inferential statistics were used for the data analysis.
Findings: The results of this study sho-w that there was a statistically signify-cant relationship between symptoms of pain before and after taking a com-bination of herbs (P=0.017).
 Discussion & conclusion: The results of the study showthat the use of herbs (combination of fennel, chamomile and ginger) is effective in relieving the sy-mptoms of dysmenorrheal. Consid-ering the high prevalence of primary dysmenorrheal and Iran’s potential in the field of herbal medicine, herbal re-medies are recommended in dysmen-orrheal pain relief along with other treatments.
Keywords: Herbal medicines, fennel, chamomile, ginger, primary dysmeno-rrheal
