Notes for this study:
||10-cm Visual Analog Scale. Mean + SD. Placebo: before 7.09±2.04, First cycle 3.49 ±1.62, second cycle 3.03±1.61. Intervention: before 7.63±1.70, First cycle 2.79 ±1.73, second 2.00±1.43 cycle.
|Number of Subjects
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 100 women with primary dysmenorrhea were allocated to take 1 g of a Melissa Officinalis extract or placebo daily over 3 days at the onset of menstrual bleeding for two consecutive cycles. During both cycles, both groups saw a notable reduction in pain severity, with the intervention group seeing a somewhat greater reduction, which was statistically significant in comparison to placebo.
