Abstract

 BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Mastalgia is a common painful complaint in women. Several different therapeutic components are used for mastalgia treatment. VITAMIN E and Evening PRIMROSE OIL (EPO) are some of these components that used for CYCLIC MASTALGIA. This study was designed to compare EPO and VITAMIN E in treatment of CYCLIC MASTALGIA and to find the best treatment for it. METHODS: This study was done as a double blind clinical trial on 100 women suffered CYCLIC MASTALGIA. Patients was divided in 4 study groups with 25 patients in each group, included: 1. Evening PRIMROSE OIL 2 gr/day, 2. VITAMIN E 400 unit daily, 3. Evening PRIMROSE OIL and VITAMIN E, 4. Placebo. The MC Gill Questionnaires was used for patient's pain evaluation before study and 1 and 6 months after intervention.FINDINGS: The mean of MC Gill score in PRIMROSE OIL group before investigation was 6.23±1.004 and was decreased to 2.68±1.002 six months after PRIMROSE OIL consumption. Also in VITAMIN E group this mount was decreased from 6.04±1.342 to 3.06±1.482. Overally the mean of MC Gill score in each of three therapeutic group was decreased after the intervention against placebo group (p=0.000). Also the difference of MC Gill score between these three therapeutic groups hasn't any significant change.
