Objective: Primary dysmenorrhea is a common gyecological problem in young women. We conducted this study to investigate the relations between life style, stress, menstrual history, dietary habits and primary dysmenorrhea.
563 college women were participated in a cross-sectional study conducted between March 2 and 6 2009. The severity of dysmenorrhea in participants was assessed by the multidimensional scoring system reported by Andersch and Milson. State of stress, smoking and drinking, dietary habits as regularity of meal, breakfast and the consumption per week for soy, milk, egg, meat, fish, fruit and coffee were examined Result: 482 (85.6%) had any degree of dysmenorrhea and 183 (32.5%) had severe dysmenorrhea. Severe dysmenorrhea was related to high stress (OR=2.537, 95% confidence interval: 1.688-3.807), smoking (2.157, 1.048-4.437), earlier menarche than 13 years old (1.660, 1.138-2.420), and family history of dysmenorrhea (1.635, 1.161-2.304). No relations emerged between dietary habits, consumption of food and severity of dysmenorrhea,
