Background & Aim: Menstrual Distress is widespread amongst women in fertility age. Awareness about self-caring behaviors regarding menstrual stress and trying to acquire the same based on experimental education must be considered as an important subject in the health system. Thus, this research was carried out in 2016 with the aim of studying the effect of self-caring behaviors taught to the girls about menstrual pain.

The data were analyzed by SPSS software and statistical testing.
