About

In this study, it was aimed to determine the effect of kegel exercise on menstruation symptoms, severity of dysmenorrheic symptoms and quality of life in nursing students with primary dysmenorrhea. The study was conducted as a single-blind randomized controlled trial.

Full description

The study was conducted in a single-blind randomized controlled trial with 89 nursing students with primary dysmenorrhea. The experimental group was given kegel exercise training online, and after the training, a message was sent to remind them to do kegel exercises three times a day during the follow-up. No intervention was made in the control group. Hypotheses of the Research VAS total scores in interventions involving kegel exercise training and regular kegel exercise are lower than control interval rates (H1). The total score of the Menstruation Symptom Scale within the participants who participated in kegel exercise training and regular kegel exercise was recorded, at lower rates than the distribution of control intervals (H1). The Severity of Dysmenorrheic Symptoms in participants who participated in kegel exercise training and regular kegel exercise interventions were lower than the distribution of control intervals (H1). The total scores of the Quality of Life Scale among those who participated in kegel exercise training and regular kegel exercises were higher than the proportions of the controlled rankings (H1).
