Background of the study: The research study undertaken was “A comparative study to evaluate the effectiveness of raw ginger and mint extract on dysmenorrheal symptoms among nursing students of selected Nursing college, Hubballi” with the purpose to evaluate the following objectives;1.To assess the dysmenorrheal symptoms among experimental group I before administration of raw ginger.2. To assess the dysmenorrheal symptoms among experimental group II before administration of mint extract. 3. To evaluate the effectiveness of raw ginger on dysmenorrheal symptoms among experimental group I. 4. To evaluate the effectiveness of mint extract on dysmenorrheal symptoms among experimental group II. 5. To compare the effectiveness of raw ginger and mint extract on dysmenorrheal symptoms among experimental group I and II. 6. To find out an association between pretest scores of experimental group I with their selected socio demographic variables.7.To find out an association between pretest scores of experimental group II with their selected socio demographic variables.
Methods: The research design used for the study was quasi-experimental; two group pre-test, post-test design. Thirty (30) Samples were selected using Non-Probability; convenient sampling technique.
Results: In Experimental Group I, in Pre-test majority of subjects 9(60%) had moderate menstrual symptoms, 6(40%) had severe menstrual symptoms in pre-test, where as in posttest 9(60%) had mild menstrual symptoms and 6(40%) had moderate menstrual symptoms. In Experimental Group II, in Pre-test majority of the subjects, 10(66%) were with severe menstrual symptoms and 5(34%) had moderate menstrual symptoms, where as in posttest all of the subjects 15(100%) had moderate menstrual symptoms. One way analysis of variance revealed that the Fcal value (26.18*) was greater than the Ftab value (7.57*). This indicates that the mean reduction in menstrual symptom scores of nursing students in the experimental group I who have taken raw ginger was higher than those in the experimental group II who were administered with mint extract.
