Abstract: 

Background: Primary dysmenorrheal is known as a painful menstruation without any pelvic disease in women. This descriptive study was conducted to survey the prevalence and intensity of primary dysmenorrheal according to the personality type in Rafsanjan high school students, in the year 2001.
Materials and Methods: 380 students 14-18 years old were selected randomly by clustering method. A questionnaire was used for collecting the data including (demographic data, menstruation cycle characteristics based on Sun dell classification, and Bortner’s questionaire of personality type). The students were also informed about the questionnaire. For data analysis SPSS software and chi-square test were used.
Results: Results showed that prevalence of primary dysmenorrheal was 85.5% and 63.3% of students had A personality type and 36.7% had B personality type. Correlation between dysmenorrheal and personality type was significant (P<0.001), which means, prevalence and intensity of dysmenorrheal in students with A personality type were higher than B types.
Conclusion: In case of future confirmation of analytical investigations, it could be concluded that there is a relationship between the personality type and the prevalence of dysmenorrhea
