INTRODUCTION: This research aims to reveal the influence of sleep hygiene interventions on premenstrual syndrome.
METHODS: In the study was used a pre-test post-test non-randomized, control group desing. This study, which was included a total of 88 (intervention group n=47; control group n=41) women with PMS. The intervention group participants were used sleep hygiene
intervention. In the first step, the participants in the intervention group received sleep hygiene education. In the second step, the participants of the intervention group used the sleep hygiene intervention for two menstrual cycles. Data were obtained by using premenstrual syndrome scale (PMS scale) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) in pre-intervention and post-intervention (1th
menstruation and 2nd menstruation period).
RESULTS: The results obtained from the study showed that there was no significant difference between two groups, both the 1st menstruation and 2nd menstruation PSQI scores (p>0.05) and PMS scale score (p>0.05). Nevertheless, when the differences in the 1th menstruation and
2nd menstruation PMS scale scores of the two groups were compared, a statistically significant improvement was detected (p<0.001).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Sleep hygiene intervention may be useful to reduce premenstrual symptoms in women.
